Message from the Mayor


Little Rock Sustainability Summit


The Little Rock Sustainability Summit is coming up on April 12 at the Clinton Presidential Library. This year’s summit, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., focuses on the business community and on how sustainability is good for business. Our guest speaker is Pam Alabaster, SVP of Sustainable Development at L’Oreal. Ms. Alabaster will give a presentation on the positive economic business case for sustainability. I have seen Ms. Alabaster’s very compelling presentation and I know it will be influential to all who attend.


The summit will also include a panel discussion with leaders from AT&T, Heifer International and UAMS. Roby Brock of Talk Business & Politics will give a presentation on green business trends.
