Johnson, a major consumer products company, is partnering with Ingersoll Rand, which is investing $350,000, and the World Environment Center to create a program called “Preparing Business Leaders for a Sustainable Future.” The program will focus on best practices and case studies to help prepare the future engineers, designers, and leaders in the broader understanding of sustainable practices. (It should be noted that one of Green Chips’ major programs is the Sustainability Leadership Academy which has been ongoing for several years now in Las Vegas. The program has received rave reviews by its participants.) The article on the S.C, Johnson program appears in the Milwaukee Business Journal.
