Sustainability Programs

Share Page

 

AIM's statewide sustainability community is made up of members from leading companies across Massachusetts. We hold quarterly round tables, periodic workshops, and information sessions.
 
Each year in the fall, we present awards to AIM member companies that are implementing interesting, innovative, and/or timely programs in the effort to be exemplary corporate citizens. 
 
As participants in AIM's Sustainability Community, our members are able to share and learn from sustainability-related successes, challenges, and lessons-learned with industry experts and their peers.
 
Representative of employers from every sector of the Massachusetts economy, this group includes C-Level members from family-owned businesses, global medical device companies, software startups, multi-billion dollar corporate giants, high-profile construction firms and women- and minority-owned enterprises.
 
 
We are pleased to be able to say that our programs are attended by industry experts and business leaders from throughout the commonwealth.

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

 

June 15, 2018 | Engagement Holds Key to Sustainability
Register for June Workshop

The most successful corporate sustainability efforts are based upon engagement with employees, management, suppliers, customers, regulators and the communities in which the companies are located. Such engagement requires that the company take into account the needs and expectations of its stakeholders. It also requires focused and well-planned communication and outreach efforts.

In this Workshop, leading practitioners will share how they are addressing sustainability issues in their supply chain, from the perspective of being a respondent to customer inquiries and also proactive interaction and collaboration with suppliers/vendors providing critical information about their own sustainability practices.

 

Sept 21, 2018 | Determining Your Organization's Path to Future Sustainability
Register for September Workshop

What is your organization doing well? What could you improve upon? What current strengths could be converted into opportunities? What weaknesses could become threats?

A Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) evaluation is the next step in understanding the current state of your sustainability program while laying out a realistic, implementable path for the future.
