If a business cannot be financially successful in their sustainability efforts, then they won’t be doing them for very long.
Rosemont, IL (Vocus) April 14, 2010
U.S. Foodservice continues its commitment to sustainability by participating in this year’s Annual Food Safety Summit taking place at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center from April 12—14. U.S. Foodservice’s Greg Pallaske is presenting on important strategies for greening businesses. Pallaske, the director of regulatory compliance at U.S. Foodservice, is a prominent sustainability expert and advocate.
“Sustainability has to be just that; sustainable,” explains Pallaske. “If a business cannot be financially successful in their sustainability efforts, then they won’t be doing them for very long.”
The presentation includes discussion of a number of key sustainability drivers, both internally and externally, that U.S. Foodservice utilizes to implement its own sustainability program. The presentation also features the top-five tips businesses can use to successfully incorporate green practices into their businesses.
“From U.S. Foodservice’s perspective, sustainability is about ensuring our company, products, services and partnerships make a credible, honest and robust contribution towards creating a sustainable economy,” said Pallaske. “And we do that by supporting the stewardship of natural resources and engaging our local communities.”
The 12th Annual Food Safety Summit is the largest and most established food safety and defense exposition in North America on food safety, quality assurance and food security. The three-day event features a full program of intensive educational seminars, high-level industry and government keynote speakers, workshops, networking events and a large trade show exhibition.
