Food Tank’s Chief Sustainability Officer and Impact Director Peer Group

Food Tank’s CSO Group brings together Chief Sustainability Officers (CSO) and Impact Directors defining business leadership around sustainability. Representing the most innovative small, medium, and large businesses, the group addresses the growing need for broader networking and collaboration to drive change in the food system. Through presentations, case studies, social events, peer to peer mentoring, and important conversations, the CSO group hopes to inspire meaningful change in the private sector.

To join or for more information about Food Tank’s peer group please email Food Tank Co-founder Bernard Pollack at bernard@foodtank.com.
