Building a Sustainable Region:

Innovative practices from Metro Chicago’s global corporations

Under the auspices of the Green Ribbon Committee, the Chicago Corporate Sustainability Working Group collaborated to produce a report that highlights the region’s unique sustainability leadership.


This regional report showcases concrete examples of the inventive ideas generated by Chicagoland’s environmentally responsible corporations—including their results.
