Seminars

Our Corporate Environmental Control group sponsors internal environmental seminars for the environmental specialists who work at Corning facilities. These seminars deliver a consistent message regarding our environmental mission and vision across all business units and geographic locations within the company.

They also provide a venue for professional training, networking and the sharing of environmental best management practices across the company.

The seminars are held regionally – including Europe and Africa, Asia Pacific and North America – to enable employees in those locations to participate.
