Mohawk Industries’ George Bandy Jr., VP of sustainability and commercial marketing, will join Groundswell CEO Michelle Moore for an engaging webcast sharing how their respective organizations built a solar energy partnership geared towards schools and underserved communities. The GreenBiz webcast, titled “Powering Inclusion Through Solar Handprints: An Innovative Partnership,” will take place Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018, 1-2 p.m. EST. Joel Makower, executive editor of GreenBiz, will serve as moderator. The webcast is free to attend online.
Earlier this year, a “handprint” was made through flooring manufacturer Mohawk’s collaboration with Groundswell, a nonprofit with a mission to bring economic relief through solar programs. The two organizations partnered to install a smartflower solar energy system in the south side of Chicago. This new handprint is bringing clean energy, savings in utilities, educational opportunities and other new beginnings to the underserved community where it has been planted. It is the inaugural system in the program, which consists of a series of 10 smartflowers slated to be installed nationwide over a three-year period.
Attendees will learn how corporate handprints can align social well-being with business strategy, how to choose and work with nonprofit partners, and how to leverage handprints to increase employee engagement. The program will be recorded and made available on-demand through the GreenBiz website.
