The GoGreen Conference, on October, 2016, created and organized by B Corporation Social Enterprises, is a sustainability learning experience for business and government decision-makers. Featuring regionally targeted content and recognized leaders from the community, GoGreen works across industry silos to foster peer-to-peer learning and collaborative solutions.

As one of their sponsors, we help advertise the event, offer discount tickets to our members, present, when possible, and do tabling and networking. It was hosted at the World Trade Center, in downtown Portland.

This event advances economic, social, and environmental sustainability, with an emphasis on corporate social responsibility. You can find out more about the conference on their website: http://portland.gogreenconference.net/

6. Project status
The GoGreen conference is always a big success, with large attendance, many tablers, and a significant number of sponsors committed to integrating sustainability into business practices.
