"The Rhode Island Manufacturers Association (RIMA) in partnership with The Fehlig Group will be hosting a workshop on Wednesday, March 10th at 10:30AM. The workshop will take place on Zoom and run for approximately one hour. The goal of this event is for attendees to learn about the importance of sustainability in business and the different methods with which they can show their environmental and social values. The workshop will also include information on recent Rhode Island legislation that enables businesses to focus on sustainability standards.
“This is an important conversation to have as businesses and manufacturers evolve to constantly changing sustainability guidelines throughout Rhode Island,” said Dave Chenevert, Executive Director of the Rhode Island Manufactures Association. “Business and sustainability are two things that go hand in hand, and can actually work quite well together.
This workshop will show business owners faced with the uncertainty of this new normal how they can put their best foot forward and still maintain a profitable and sustainable business.” Speakers will include Elizabeth Shanley of The Fehlig Group, as well as Rep. Deborah Ruggiero of District 74- Jamestown/Middletown and Mary Fehlig of The Fehlig Group. This workshop will be presented virtually through Zoom. Cost: Free To Members, $25 for Non-Members.
