Ask ten people “what does sustainability mean to you” and you’ll get ten different answers.  There will be common threads throughout the responses, likely the first things that come to mind like “green”, “renewable”, “LEED”, or “the capacity to endure”.  However, the deeper meaning of sustainability is likely to be missed unless one has been exposed to the building body of knowledge surrounding the theme of sustainability, or it’s close partner resiliency.  Sustainability starts with a mindset, one that begins with the end in mind.

Chicago Manufacturing Renaissance Council (CMRC)

Chicago Manufacturing Renaissance Council (CMRC) | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Formed in 2005, the Chicago Manufacturing Renaissance Council (CMRC) is a coalition of business, labor, government, and community leaders working to make Chicago the global leader in advanced manufacturing. We believe advanced manufacturing can build a society that is socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable and restorative.

Success in the global manufacturing economy requires a determination to lead the race to the top -- to be the best in innovation, research and development, and production of complex products. Success also requires engagement with stakeholders at all levels of society.
