Shaw Industries to host ‘Great Indoors’ webinar

Home COVID-19 Shaw Industries to host 'Great Indoors' webinar

Dalton—Shaw Industries, in conjunction with Sustainable Brands, plans to host a webinar titled “The Great Indoors – Creating a Nurturing Habitat for People and the Planet” on Tuesday, Sept. 1, at 1 p.m. EST. The session brings together Shaw, Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute and the International WELL Building Institute for a discussion about creating spaces designed for people and the planet.

The session aligns with Shaw’s focus on putting people at the center of sustainability, what it calls sustain[HUMAN]ability and will focus on the following key areas:

  • trends that have been driving this shift toward a greater focus on human experience and well-being within sustainability in commercial and residential environments
  • the potential impacts of COVID-19 on that trajectory
  • perspectives from a range of organizations focused on this issue
  • strategies for helping create a nurturing habitat

Speakers include:

  • Troy Virgo, director of sustainability, Shaw Industries
  • Christina Raab, vice president of strategy and development, Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute
  • Shalini Ramesh, director of commercial team, International WELL Building Institute

“Spending 90% of our time inside, we’ve become an indoor species,” Shaw’s Virgo said. “That’s why it’s imperative that we create a nurturing new habitat that’s designed for people and the planet. Plus, we can’t overlook the short- and long-term impacts that COVID-19 will have on our lives. Those are the key topics we’ll explore in the webinar, and we look forward to dynamic conversations with participants from around the world.”
