SHINE Summit 2017: Creating a Positive Future
At the Center for Health and the Global Environment, we know we cannot solve the greatest challenges to health by working in isolation. That is why we bring together people across professions to learn and share innovative ideas that improve the places in which we live and work. Our SHINE program works with companies to test and refine new ways to conduct business that nurture human health and the environment. We've translated this research into knowledge and tools that guide companies to make business decisions that have a more positive impact on our health and planet. We want to share what we have learned with you. The SHINE Summit hosted at Harvard is our annual forum for bringing together visionary thinkers, innovative researchers, and practical solutions for business leaders to advance corporate sustainability and well-being in the workplace.
This year’s theme - Creating a Positive Future - is an inspired call-to-action for corporate leaders seeking proven strategies to create a healthier and more sustainable world. We’ve translated the latest SHINE research into powerful tools and methods that can guide and advance your organization's corporate responsibility, sustainability and well-being practices. Together we’ll explore new opportunities for companies to thrive by improving well-being and sustainability within the workplace, in the community, across supply chains and globally.
The Summit is hosted by our Sustainability and Health Initiative for NetPositive Enterprise, also known as SHINE.
