West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum and the U.S. Green Building Council West Michigan Chapter presented a luncheon program on March 10 entitled Climate and Sustainability outlining how sustainability and resiliency go together. Nicholas Occhipinti and Aaron Ferguson gave a briefing on the Grand Rapids Climate Resiliency Report. Then select forum members shared how climate change is impacting their operations as an introduction to the West Michigan Climate Resiliency Framework Initiative, a partnership between WMSBF, Michigan State University, Penn State University and the Rand Corp., among other collaborators.
