Progress on labor and environmental issues over the past 15 years in facilities producing consumer goods for export has, by most accounts, been nothing short of impressive. More progress needs to be made, but as we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP), we wanted to facilitate a meeting of the best minds and leaders from around the world who have graciously offered to share their progress for the benefit of all.

We are pleased to confirm the following list of speakers:

Please join us in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on November 18-19 for the most important information sharing event of 2010. You are invited to listen to and talk with senior executives who are running businesses – executives who have invested in leading-edge programs and technologies that have directly improved their business processes and profitability – and demonstrated their commitment to socially and environmentally responsible business practices.

You will hear how investing in programs ranging from waste treatment to day care centers, chemical management programs, alternative energy, health care, education and training and even local sports have improved their operations and contributed to the improved well-being of the community.
