About the Academy
While many have focused on what 'sustainability' means for business strategy, precious few have paid attention to actually making it happen inside large and small organizations.
The Business Sustainability Leadership and Inspiration Academy will shine the guiding light for those charged with implementing sustainability—the necessary strategies, structures, systems, metrics, and performance measurements.
In addition, identifying, measuring, and improving social impacts is significant challenge not only for corporate and private foundations, charities, and NGOs, but also for corporations.
How best to balance possible social and environmental benefits (and costs) against one another? How does one bring clarity to multiple possibilities and opportunities?
Based on years of work and new field studies from around the globe, Marc J. Epstein and Adriana Rejc Buhovac will share with participants numerous examples of actual organizational approaches and extensive practical guidance and best practices in making sustainability work.
Why choose the Business Sustainability Leadership and Inspiration Academy?
Participants of the academy will participate in the ultimate 'how-to-do-it' workshops in making sustainability work and measuring social impacts.
