UVM Sustainability Leadership Programs for Professionals
Summer Institute July 11-22, 2011
Sustainability has become the key driver of innovation across all industries and all sectors. Businesses and organizations of all types and sizes are seeking knowledgeable leaders who can help them shift their practices to be sustainable. Communities need citizens who are prepared to help develop real solutions for the challenges they face. Are you prepared?
Here in Vermont, many nationally-known businesses have applied the principles of environmental sustainability and social responsibility and still remain highly profitable. The question is, “How?”
Through the “Sustainable Business: Practices in Support of People, Profit and Principles” experience – a five-day, intensive summer program at the University of Vermont’s Burlington, Vermont campus – you can learn the design, organization and management principles and practices that have made these Vermont enterprises sustainable and profitable from the very business leaders who have forged the way. More importantly, you can apply what you learn.
