Toronto, Ontario, 19-September-2012 – Claire Purvis, Manager of Sustainability at Energy Advantage, will speak at the 2012 FMI Sustainability Summit in Washington, DC on October 4th, 2012. Purvis will present on best practices for engaging stakeholders in sustainability.

In the session, titled “Telling a Complicated Story: Stakeholder Engagement and Sustainability Results in Theory & Practice”, co-presented with Unified Grocer and PepsiCo, Purvis will introduce the session and offer advice to grocery stores who are implementing stakeholder engagement strategies at their organizations.

“Many grocery stores have implemented capital and operational initiatives and are now looking to take their sustainability programs to the next level,” says Purvis. “Educating and inspiring stakeholders about your company’s sustainability efforts, even changing their behaviours, can drive significant benefits to your organization, including raising awareness about sustainability initiatives at your company, motivating stakeholders to act more sustainably and achieving and sustaining long term cost savings.”

The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) have developed the Sustainability Summit to give companies the tools, connections and proactive solutions to take their sustainability programs to the next level.
