SUSTAINABILITY SUMMIT

Friday, June 9th

Sustainability Summit presented by the Shi Institute for Sustainable Communities at Furman University partnered with Piedmont Natural Gas

10:00 am - 2:00pm

Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Greenville SC

The BMW Charity Pro-Am is partnering with Sustain SC to host a one day event that brings community business partners together to discuss sustainability within business and events. There will be break out sessions that include:

  • Sustainability Reporting
  • Scope 3 Emissions and the Supply Chain
  • Innovation in Sustainability
  • Sustainability Experts


Keynote Panel Speakers Dr. Robert Engelhorn, President and CEO of BMW Manufacturing and Halsey M. Cook Jr. President and CEO of Milliken and Company, and Dr. Elizabeth Davis, President of, Furman University.

There will be an exhibit area where companies/nonprofits that assist businesses with meeting their goals can bring their expertise and resources. We feel that it is best to bring the resource to the company vs the company searching for the resource!

Proceeds from this event will go to support SustainSC in their efforts to make the Upstate a more sustainable community.

What our Sponsors are saying:

The Shi Institute for Sustainable Communities at Furman University is a proud partner of the BMW Pro-Am presented by TD SYNNEX for the second year. The sustainability planning team is dedicated to reducing the impact of the event and is driving innovation in golf on a much larger scale. The Shi Institute at Furman, like the BMW Pro-Am, addresses sustainability from a broad lens, working with community partners to improve not only environmental metrics, but also critical social factors like access and equity. Together, we will make the Upstate a better place for people and the planet.
