To all of the attendees of the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council’s 2017 Summit, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Denver! We’re honored to host this year’s summit, and proud that you selected us to hold these critically important conversations around your industry.
Sustainability is a value we hold dear here in Denver – it’s a value that we seek to include in everything from our building codes to our purchasing. Our Purchasing Division relies on the very best practices and new innovations advanced at gatherings like this to ensure that we set ourselves on a sustainable future in all aspects of our operations. And we were honored to recently receive the Silver Award for Denver’s achievements in the State Electronics Challenge from the Northeast Recycling Council in recognition of those efforts.
While you’re here, we hope you take some time to enjoy all that our great city has to offer, but most importantly, that you continue to engage your colleagues and continue driving forward on important topics. Best of luck on an informative and future-looking summit.
Michael B. Hancock
Mayor, City and County of Denver
