Building a Culture of Sustainability
(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) September 6, 2011 - Your company has embraced sustainability by setting targets, publishing reports and changing light bulbs. Now, you're ready for the biggest step: taking sustainable thinking from the executive suite and applying it to project design in the field.
Thursday, September 15, 1-2pm EDT, the Pembina Institute, a Canadian not-for-profit think tank focused on developing innovative sustainable energy solutions and a member of the Network for Business Sustainability's Leadership Council, is hosting a webinar that will highlight how today's companies are advancing sustainable thinking across operations. Highlights from "Embedding Sustainability in Organizational Culture" by NBS Topic Editor Dr. Stephanie Bertels are featured. NBS members are encouraged to register for this free event that will profile, among other items, whole systems thinking to embed triple-bottom line thinking in capital project design and decision-making.
The Network for Business Sustainability is a not-for-profit organization that connects business leaders and academic experts worldwide to devise new business models for the 21st century. NBS is located at the Richard Ivey School of Business (at The University of Western Ontario) in London, Canada and at the Université du Québec à Montréal. NBS is funded primarily by Canada’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, with additional support from industry partners.
