Business and sustainability

Business-leading UDM alumni and College of Business Administration faculty discuss the topic, "Sustainability creates business value," at a forum during the College's 2010 Alumni Week.

As discussed at the forum, sustainability means striking a productive balance between the short-term health and the long-term viability of an enterprise. Sustainability has become equated to environmentalism, but it is much more. The purpose of the forum was to explore the case that sustainability can create measurable value for an enterprise and its stakeholders.
