Description

The Business Case for Sustainability

We’re thrilled to continue our series of talks on ethics and sustainability in business this fall, with our 5th presentation featuring Mark Pezarro, President of Earthvoice Strategies, on The Sustainability Shift: The Business Case for Sustainability.

The Sustainability Series is presented in partnership with our Bachelor of Management (BAM) undergrad degree completion program, which focuses on socially and environmentally responsible management. The BAM program as an extension of our values and community approach already ingrained in our successful Master of Education and Master of Counselling programs. The Sustainability Series further supports that approach.

The business case for sustainability will be explored building on Bob Willard’s seminal work in this area. Bob Willard is a former senior executive with IBM Canada who has conducted extensive research on the top and bottom line advantages of adopting sustainable business practices. He is the author of a number of books on the subject.
