SFC is Washington-Bound

The Sustainable Furnishings Council and the American Sustainable Business Council have confirmed meetings with administration officials at the White House, including those from the departments of Labor and Energy, the EPA, as part of ASBC 3rd Annual Business summit, Nov. 12-14 in Washington.

SFC members will have the opportunity to spend concentrated time with some of the country’s leading policy makers, and tell government leaders what needs to happen on key policy issues: climate, tax and chemical reform, minimum wage, sustainable agriculture, small business capital access and other issues. They have a chance to create working relationships with elected officials and regulators that can help shape policy outcomes in the new 114th Congress; and can network with and learn from more than 100 leaders of the innovative and responsible businesses.

The Summit starts Wednesday, Nov. 12 with an evening networking reception with guests from the White House and Congress at a beautiful Capitol Hill residence. Thursday, Nov. 13 includes a day-long strategy and planning session hosted by K&L Gates LLP with presenters from the media, administration and Congress; and an evening networking reception.

Friday, Nov. 14 starts at the White House, 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m., for meetings with senior administration officials on key policy issues, including invited guests Secretary of Labor Tom Perez and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy; and then moves to Capitol Hill for lobby visits at House and Senate offices.
