Student Environmental Advocacy Group, Enactus, Hosts Fifth Annual Environmental Sustainability Conference at Vanguard University

Orange County businesses learn how to implement environmentally-friendly business practices that are both sustainable and profitable at annual conference

Costa Mesa, CA, February 5, 2013 – The Vanguard University chapter of Enactus (formerly known as SIFE), a student-run, international non-profit, announced today that it will bring together leaders in environmentally responsible business at its annual Environmental Sustainability Conference on February 8, 2013. The conference will provide attendees with the tools and resources to implement innovative and sustainable business and life practices.

Enactus has organized the Environmental Sustainability Conference to educate the public on the importance of “going green” and how they can adopt policies that reflect corporate social responsibility. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with speakers and prominent business leaders during the interactive workshops and exhibitor fair.

“Increased global concerns over the harmful impact businesses have had on the planet have forced businesses to consider green policies,” says Michael O’Connor, 2011-12 president of Enactus at Vanguard University. “The time has come for businesses to be proactive in aligning best practices with a strong sustainability business policy. The Orange County business community will learn from their peers about ways to implement sustainable business while not adversely impacting their bottom line.”

Top industry leaders in the reform for sustainable business and lifestyle include the event’s keynote speaker, Martin Diedrich, founder of Kéan Coffee, who is a leader in bringing environmental initiatives into his business culture. Mr. Diedrich will provide insight into the topic of developing a sustainably-minded worldview through his experiences at coffee retailers Diedrich Coffee and Kéan Coffee.
