The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) has announced that Steve Baer, senior consultant for PE International, will be speaking at its Executive Management Conference. The event will be held October 3-4, 2012 at The Charles Hotel at Harvard Square, Cambridge, Mass.

While the concept of corporate sustainability is not new, it remains ill-defined, says the WDMA. Pressure is mounting for manufacturers to determine and disclose the cradle-to-grave environmental impact of their products, as they feel the push from environmental groups, consumers, specifiers, government agencies, building codes, standards and green building rating programs. This session will explore the current state of the industry, where it’s headed, and the influence of these issues on the future of manufacturing.
