What is Business Sustainability?

Sustainable enterprise is doing business in a way that makes profits while avoiding harm to society and reducing impact on the environment. The challenges of avoiding harm to society and environment can be seen as business opportunities that serve a triple bottom line of profits, society, and the environment. Sustainable businesses pursue market solutions that push them ahead of the competition or help them to enter new markets with products better suited to long term growth.

The Spears School of Business is now offering a Graduate Certificate in Business Sustainability and Non-Profit Management. Students and working professionals pursuing these certificates will learn strategies that help companies pursue a financial profitability, ecological integrity, and social equity.
