As we move into the new year, we're happy to share some exciting news from ISOS Group that highlights the promotion of sustainability around the world, across borders and in our local neighborhoods.
Nancy Mancilla, cofounder and CEO, has been awarded an Eisenhower Fellowship in the Zhi-Xing China Program. Nancy will be spending four weeks in China traveling and working with sustainability professionals to strengthen practices and deepen cultural understanding between China and the U.S. Congratulations, Nancy; you rock!
In December, ISOS Group was an honorary participant in CETYS Tijuana's 8th Annual Lobby Empresarial, or Business Lobby. The December event focused on the theme of sustainable business and brought together companies in the region, including Bose, Flex and Foxconn. Nancy provided the keynote speech and participated on a panel on best practices, which included Elica Avante, an organization focused on implementing zero-waste solutions founded by Daniel Sanchez, a recent YLAI fellow with ISOS Group.
Finally, we're proud to announce our membership with Business For Good San Diego. The values-driven organization is supported by local small business owners to drive policy to improve the communities in which they operate. A recent victory was the passage of a polystyrene (Styrofoam) ban in the City of San Diego, the largest city in California to pass such a measure.
