Description

Join us on May 2nd for our third annual conference as we once again bring together an amazing lineup of sustainability and corporate luminaries, from attorneys and CPAs to CEOs and CFOs.

The Sustainability Investment Leadership Council (SILC) was created to foster insight on how accountants and attorneys can incorporate sustainability practices that align economic opportunity with sustainable policies. SILC’s vision is to educate, encourage, and expand the understanding of sustainability and the impact it has on profitability based on policy, measurability, and standards.

Our Agenda for May 2nd can be found here and more information is available on www.silcny.com.
