BSR and BNY Mellon will host a lunch in Pittsburgh that will explore opportunities to collaborate on sustainability issues.

Increasingly, corporations are collaborating to achieve their sustainability and corporate responsibility agendas. This collaboration occurs at many levels—such as global UN-led forums, informal multi-company working groups, or joint initiatives between two companies. In some cases, companies are creating opportunities to work with their suppliers and customers on a business level to develop sustainable products and services. In other cases, companies are developing thought leadership to motivate and engage the broader business community on joint action. And often, these collaborations occur on a local level.

BNY Mellon, with its industry-leading corporate responsibility program based in Pittsburgh, and BSR, as a leading nonprofit and business network dedicated to sustainability, wish to explore opportunities for Pittsburgh-based companies to work together to expand the impacts of their sustainability agendas.

The agenda will include:

  • Presentations from BNY Mellon and BSR on effective cross-industry sustainability collaborations and how companies are combining resources and efforts to drive greater impact
  • An interactive discussion and facilitated group brainstorm
  • Lunch and networking among participants and speakers
