IUPUI is the proud host of the Indiana Sustainability and Resilience Conference, made possible by the McKinney Family Foundation. The Conference is a productive, annual gathering of sustainability professionals and champions from across the state of Indiana. It is designed to showcase local successes, share best practices, engage in place-based problem solving, and facilitate collaboration to advance sustainability in the Hoosier state.
The inaugural Indiana Sustainability and Resilience Conference, presented by the Indianapolis Airport Authority, explored the theme, Sustainability as an Economic Driver. Many businesses in our state and across the nation have found sustainability is not just a wise marketing posture, but rather a legitimately profitable and forward-looking business strategy. The Conference explored what businesses, communities and nonprofits alike can gain from investing in sustainability, including improved stakeholder relations, risk management, driving competitive advantage, fostering innovation and more.
