Dalton, Ga.—Shaw Industries is hosting a webinar with Sustainable Brands Oct. 17 at 1 p.m. with diverse organizations intently focused on products and initiatives that support the well-being of people and the planet.

“At Shaw, we put people at the center of sustainability—what we call sustain[HUMAN]ability,” said Susan Farris, vice president of sustainability and corporate communications at Shaw. “It’s why we’re focused on the ingredients that go into products and the impacts of sound, moisture and other design elements so we can create a better future.

This webinar provides the opportunity for attendees to learn from others’ successes and innovations as well as the challenges they faced in the process.”
