Business Leaders Talk Up Innovation at 2018 Sustainability Summit... Los Angeles business leaders left an audience of several hundred people with the impression that innovation was the most potent weapon in the battle for sustainability. Walmart, Senior Director for Supply Chain Sustainability, Elizabeth Fretheim said, "Innovation is an important part of how we will meet our goals." Mitsubishi Electric Senior Director, Business Innovations Division, Dr. Zafer Sahinoglu agreed: "Regulation set the bar for innovation and now innovation is leap-frogging regulation." Walmart's Fretheim raised a concern about the costs associated with innovation, however. "It is a fantastic time for innovation, but innovation could be expensive. We need to find a way for foundational architecture to be modified in a more efficient manner." Also on the panel were Paul Jennings, Principal, PCS Energy; Kasey Krape Senior Program Manager, Strategy & Business Development, Tesla and Dennis Rodriguez Chief City Executive, Siemens.
