Kathleen Shanahan, Chair and CEO of WRScompass, presented at the Republican Governor's Association (RGA) Executive Roundtable retreat in Aspen, CO on Thursday, July 15th. The roundtable titled "A New Approach - Environment & Sustainability" featured prominent business representatives from around the U.S.
Moderated by Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle, the panel discussion was driven by the understanding that Governors will play an ever-increasing role in environmental policy as new population centers develop and urban cores grow and place more pressure on limited resources and the environment. Fellow panelists included Jon Callaghan, Portfolio, Real Estate and HBU Manager of RMK Timberland; Bill Johnson, President of Johnson Timber; and Bill Simon, President and CEO, Wal-Mart U.S of Wal-Mart, Inc.
"Sustainability is a fundamental approach for gaining efficiency at every level of an organization, from Fortune 500 companies to our state and federal governments," stated Ms. Shanahan. "The value of sustainability - socially, environmentally, and economically, creates stronger organizations throughout their supply chain."
Other conference attendees included Texas Governor Rick Perry and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, along with Gubernatorial candidates from Nevada, New Mexico, and Oregon.
