Marin Sustainable Enterprise Conference 2019

NewGen Surgical will attend this year’s Marin Sustainability Enterprise Conference, hosted by VenturePad at the Marin Art & Garden Center on September 25th in Ross, CA. The all-day conference promotes sustainable business practices in the North Bay of San Francisco, provides tools for companies in transition, and connects business and community leaders to work on creating more environmental-conscious organizations and communities.

Rob Chase, president and founder of NewGen Surgical, will be a panelist on “Closing the Loop: Why Recycling is No Longer Enough” about transforming businesses to take tangible steps to reduce the harms of our current throw-away culture. The panel of local leaders, moderated by Cory Bytof, sustainability program manager of the City of San Rafael, will include Doug Kobold, executive director at California Product Stewardship Council, Patty Garbarino, president at Marin Sanitary Service & Marin Resource & Recovery Center, and Nicole Tai, CEO of Greenlynx Deconstruction, Woodworks, & Reuse.

“It is inspiring to see so many community leaders come together to discuss solutions for a healthier future,” said Rob. “Marin is an innovative, sustainable community, and there is a reason this is the home of NewGen Surgical. We must collectively do our best to ensure a thriving environment for future generations.”

The Marin Sustainability Enterprise Conference is an annual gathering of leaders to educate and work with North Bay businesses and the local community to integrate environmental responsibility, sustainable business practices, and solve economic and social equity issues. VenturePad acts as a catalyst to bring business, government, nonprofits, and the local community together to transform enterprise.
