Environmental Committee

The Environmental Committee provides AAFA members a forum to discuss proper environmental stewardship and sustainability best practices for the industry.

Committee Leadership

Emily Gigot, Chair
Sustainability Manager, SanMar

AAFA, and in particular the work of the committees, has proven to be invaluable for our team. They continuously bring resources and insights on important issues, and have built a community of practitioners where we can share best practices and learn from each other to build a more sustainable industry.

-- Emily Gigot, 2021 Environmental Committee Chair

Jimmy Summers, Vice-Chair
Vice President - Environmental, Health and Safety/Sustainability, American & Efird LLC

The Environmental Committee of AAFA is a very important part of our commitment to engagement and education under our sustainability program. Through participation, we gain important insight into sustainability issues, and are able to discuss approaches and collaborate with others in the industry.
