Commit to a sustainable workforce and supply chain

The C-suite and CR/sustainability pros come together to share best ideas.

By the Editors

In this special section, we offer highlights of the 2014 COMMIT!Forum held Oct. 8-9 in New York. More than 50 expert speakers in 25 sessions, nearly 20 CEOs, and hundreds of corporate responsibility and sustainability professionals all joined together to network, learn and share their insights into what the most responsible companies are doing. The discussions focused on building sustainable workforces and supply chains, among other things.

You can see the excitement and engagement among the participants in the following pages, and then delve into several in-depth features that present some of the strongest ideas offered at COMMIT! These features include:

• A one-on-one interview with CVS Health CEO Larry Merlo.
• Highlights of a panel discussion among four responsible CEOs: J.P. Bilbrey of Hershey; Rob DeMartini of New Balance; Rosaleen Blair of Alexander Mann Solutions; and Rakesh Sachdev of Sigma-Aldrich.
• A HR/CEO discussion with Stuart Thorn and Kathleen Edge of Southwire.

As you can tell, sustainable and efficient business practices require strong leadership—and our featured panelists, speakers and participants showed just that in New York. See you next year.
