Wisconsin Green Business
Environmental responsibility requires
more than just compliance with state and federal laws and regulations. Today, many Wisconsin companies are taking a comprehensive approach to integrate sustainability into their operations. However, this can be a daunting task and it
calls for a new way of thinking.
WEI educates and is a leader on ways to help ease the transition towards more resource efficient business strategy.
Executive Director John Imes continues to serve as an advisor to the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters initiative that examines Wisconsin's dependence on fossil fuels and offers "pathways to progress" that support sustainable energy sources. John works on the Advisory Committee that developed: "Climate Forward: A New Road Map for Wisconsin's Climate And Energy Future": Find the Roap Map here.
John's guest column: "Other Midwest states eating our lunch on clean energy" appeared in the Wausau Daily Herald, Milwaukee Business Times, Waukesha Freshman, The Capital Times and WisPolitics/WisBusiness news sources.
In addition to his presentation at the WI Academy's Resilient Wisconsin Day, John also traveled to Washington, D.C., to attend the National Blue-Green Alliance Green Jobs Conference, a White House event, and met Congressman Mark Pocan, Senator Tammy Baldwin's Chief of Staff, and other colleagues to highlight the Road Map and ways we can implement the recommendations to achieve a green and growing Wisconsin.
