The Earth Institute and the M.S. in Sustainability Management program are hosting a panel on ‘Transforming Organizations through Sustainability Management.’ Attendees will develop an understanding of how companies are incorporating sustainability management into routine operations and supply chains. What are the concrete actions that drive sustainability performance in a supply chain? What incentivizes organizations to integrate corporate social responsibility into their business model? How can sustainability professionals influence decision-making processes? Our group of experts will discuss why sustainability concepts are important for 21st century organizations, and what strategies have been successful for top companies.

Please join us for this lively event on Wednesday, March 29th from 6:00pm – 7:00pm in Low Library Rotunda on Columbia University’s Morningside Campus. Earth Institute Executive Director Steve Cohen will moderate the panel, featuring the following panelists:

  *   James Ossman, Senior Manager, Global Operations, Etsy
  *   Curtis Probst, Managing Director, Sustainable Finance, Rocky Mountain Institute
  *   Celine Ruben-Salama, Principal, FOR THE LONG-TERM
  *   Zachary Suttile, Director, Willdan Energy Solutions

After the panel there will be ample time for discussion over wine, beer and hors d'oeuvres. This event is free and open to the public; please share with your colleagues. RSVP is required here.<https://events.columbia.edu/cal/event/eventView.do?b=de&calPath=%2Fpublic%2Fcals%2FMainCal&guid=CAL-00bbdc41-59594642-0159-94a106fb-000053b3events@columbia.edu&recurrenceId=>
