A Panel Discussion

Every year leading up to 2019, Cleveland focuses on one of the key areas fundamental to a sustainable economy.


2014 is the Year of Zero Waste for Sustainable Cleveland 2019. By reducing the amount of waste Cleveland produces and sends to landfills, the city can improve human health through the elimination of hazardous waste, protect and increase property values and quality of place, as well as save businesses, organizations, the government and community money.

Mel Kurtz, Founder and President, Quasar Energy Group

Nicole P. Schiro, Vice President, Brand Manager, PNC


This conversation will be moderated by the City of Cleveland's Chief of Sustainability Jenita McGowan.
