At TSC Summit 2019, we will celebrate TSC’s work over the last ten years as well as bring together members and guests to tackle the latest sustainability challenges through workshops and meetings. Ten years in, we are seeing improvement across the industry, and that is due to the hard work of TSC members and staff.

Join us this year to continue our measurement and reporting work, see what innovations leading-organizations and companies are driving with sustainable consumer goods up, down and across the supply chain, and join a unique networking opportunity with a small and mighty group of game-changers.

Who Attends TSC Summit

TSC Summit is an intimate gathering of TSC members, staff, partners and invited guests. This small, under 250-person conference, assures the best collaboration, networking and working conference out there. Attendees come ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work with hands-on workshops, while also coming away with big ideas and new innovations to make their workday and sustainability goals more effective and impactful. We build in plenty of networking and get-to-know-you activities that let all attendees meet TSC members.
