Protecting and sustaining the environment has evolved into one of the most significant priorities for today’s corporations. Due to new and ever-changing government regulations and directed local initiatives, it is increasingly important for leading manufacturers and material suppliers to encourage their organizations to implement sound environmental practices that promote sustainable resource stewardship.
The purpose of the Summit for Sustainability in Materials & Manufacturing is to identify current changes in environmental and sustainability standards, and to inform manufacturing leaders and decision makers of best practices, smart solutions and innovations available to their organizations. Conference programming will focus on strategic resource management and address opportunities to implement cost savings due to sustainable practices. The summit will also allow corporations to demonstrate their support of dialogue focused on current environmental policies, initiatives and challenges.
Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities are also available.

There are many opportunities for water-savings in commercial kitchens and restaurants. EPA’s WaterSense program will discuss commercial kitchen equipment, including equipment that is ENERGY STAR or WaterSense labeled, such as dishwashers, ice machines, pre-rinse spray valves, and steam cooking equipment. Attendees will hear about best practices related to operations and maintenance techniques, retrofit options, and replacement options for each equipment type.
Energy Management Systems, such as ISO 50001 and Superior Energy Performance (SEP), are powerful tools to ensure that a facility is continuously reducing its energy usage and environmental footprint. PennTAP will review the steps and requirements for certification under each system. PennTAP will also outline the benefits beyond reducing energy costs.
