More and more organizations are grappling with increased regulatory requirements, supply constraints, and consumer demands for safe and sustainable products. The Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management (MDIIM) in collaboration with the McGill Department of Chemistry’s NSERC CREATE in Green Chemistry program and the Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering in Design (TISED) invite you to hear from two leading experts. They will impart their knowledge and insight on the innovative potential sustainability has on guiding new product design and investment decisions.
