U.S. companies are concerned with cutting costs, meeting new regulatory challenges, the lack of visibility that sustainable business practices receive nationwide, and the lack of information U.S. manufacturers and service providers possess in this field. In order to continue spreading awareness of the cost-effectiveness of implementing sustainable business practices, especially the importance of sustainable supply chains, both to U.S. global competitiveness and the environment, MAS will begin its second round of regional facility tours in Seattle, Washington in July 2009 and will aim to visit at least two additional regions by the end of 2009. The goal of these tours is to demonstrate to other similarly situated firms in the area that incorporating sustainable business techniques into the production and distribution cycle is not cost-prohibitive and, in fact, can help the long-term economic viability of American firms. The event in Seattle will most likely be held in mid-July and will likely include tours of four facilities engaged in sustainable business practices at various points in a supply chain. Environmental managers, plant managers and other relevant company decision-makers from local small and medium-sized manufacturers and service providers who are interested in attending this event should contact the sustainable manufacturing team through the email address listed above. The team, in consultation with the local U.S. Export Assistance Center and Washington Manufacturing Services, will make a determination on attendance on a first-come-first-served basis, taking into account the criteria named above as well as the U.S. Export Assistance Center and Washington Manufacturing Services’ knowledge of the local economy and the relevance of the event to individual firms in the Seattle area and to strive for the tour participants to reflect the diversity of the local business community within the manufacturing industry sector. Only one representative from each company will be invited to attend. Each of the future events will most likely include tours of local manufacturing and service provider facilities that showcase firms that are incorporating sustainable business techniques into their business operations or have facilities that are otherwise sustainable. Manufacturing and Services seeks public input on VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:55 Jun 19, 2009 Jkt 217001 possible cities and/or regions that would benefit from hosting a sustainable supply chain event or firms that would be willing to demonstrate and showcase their sustainable business capabilities and practices as part of a possible regional facility tour in their region. Responses to this notice should include a brief rationale as to why a particular firm, city or region would be a strong candidate for one of these events. Participants will not be paid.
