Stanford Webinar - How to Build a Sustainable Organization

Sustainability as a business strategy is at the forefront of effective leadership for the 21st century—and it means much more than being “green.” It is about developing systems and processes that make your business resilient and successful while enabling the world’s population to thrive, now and for generations to come.

In this webinar, Stanford’s Julia Novy-Hildesley, Professor of the Practice and Executive Director of Stanford's Change Leadership for Sustainability Program, will share methods and frameworks for understanding, anticipating, and managing today’s ever-changing environments. She will explain what it means to lead for sustainability. Using research and case studies from pioneers in the field, Julia will explore how and why 21st-century companies are changing the role that sustainability plays in their business goals, and how it is impacting their companies’ successes.
