NMBC and ConED to Partner on Green Sustainability and Compliance Forum

New York, NY, November 04, 2014 --(PR.com)-- On Tuesday, November 18th, the Con Edison Supplier Diversity Program will be hosting a forum along with the National Minority Business Council (NMBC).

Guests who attend the event will learn, how helping Con Edison achieve their environmental goals can open new opportunities for their company. The event will also inform guests; identify opportunities related to new corporate “green supply chain” initiatives; and learn about emerging corporate customer requirements and how to use Con Edison resources to help develop an “Ethics and Compliance” program.

Con Edison has been a vital part of the communities in New York City for over 180 years. Founded in 1823, Con Edison has been one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the United States. “We are thrilled to be co-sponsoring this forum with Con Edison,” says John F. Robinson, President & CEO of NMBC. “Con Edison has had a long-standing relationship with NMBC’s Supplier Diversity Program.”

According to InvestorIdeas.com, Con Edison is “One of America's most prominent and respected brands in retail energy; the company has been particularly outspoken about its pledge to fully inform customers about regulatory factors or contract components that may hold the potential for future price impacts.”

Admission to the event is free, but pre-registration is required. Please RSVP to: Sonia Walkes at walkess@coned.com
