We were honored to be part of the second annual Sound of Social Change Grammy Panel this past weekend. Sponsored by Waste Management, the summit featured panelists discussing corporate responsibility in the field of sustainability, decreasing their impact on the environment, and how industry insiders can use their collective power to drive change in greening.
The panel was moderated by Greg Baldwin, executive director of Environmental Media Association, and featured Lewis Perkins, New House LLC sustainable strategist, and Wanda Williams, director of customer alliances and solutions for Waste Management.
The panelists included Bridgette Bell, global sustainability manager, Yum! Brands; William Brent, executive vice president, Weber Shandwick’s Cleantech; Jennifer Miller DuBuisson, associate manager of global sustainability, Mattel; Michael J. O’Brien, vice president of corporate and product placement, Hyundai; and Tim Sexton, co-founder of environmental policy business association E2.
The Recording Academy has taken the lead in continuing efforts to green the GRAMMY Awards by recycling bottles, cans, and glass from various events, purchasing renewable energy for the production of the show, and partnering with local charities to prevent excessive food waste. These issues are crucial to the overall health of our planet and the survival of our global economies.
