Stanford Webinar - The Pursuit of Sustainability

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 not only make your business resilient and successful, but enable the world’s population to
thrive, now and for generations to come.

This mandate can be a daunting challenge to take on for any company. But joining the avant garde of change leadership does not have to be as risky to current business as it may seem. In this webinar, Stanford’'s Pam Matson will explore how you can include sustainability in your business goals and ultimately increase your organization’s global impact.
