The Midwest Bioeconomy and Safer Product Summit will examine green chemistry, innovation and sustainability initiatives and will provide lessons learned from market pioneers on getting ahead of the regulatory curve via product and brand innovation and from business entrepreneurs on commercializing biobased chemical production. The Summit will also provide the networking necessary to thrive in this new era of consumer goods and will bring together academics and legislators with nationally recognized consumer brands, manufacturers, retailers, regulators and green chemistry experts to provide the timeliest information on the rapidly evolving state, federal and international chemical legislation landscape.
Kate Heiny, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Target will deliver a keynote address on the full story of safer products and green alternatives along the supply chain.
