Business and Sustainability Seminar by Dinker Anand, Kirwan Rockefeller, Ph.D., and Greg Shank
Business and Sustainability, recorded seminar on March 2, 2010 with Dinker Anand from Toshiba AEC, Inc., Kirwan Rockefeller, Ph.D. Director of Sustainability Leadership Program at UC Irvine Extension, and Greg Shank, Vice President, CTG Energetics, Inc. Protecting the environment and promoting business are often discussed as competing goals. Yet, there is a growing recognition that the next wave of innovation and development will come through fusing environment and business. From the movement for energy independence through renewable sources to efforts to promote economic recovery through green jobs, the creation of a sustainable economy is one of the core challenges of sustainable development. This panel will present three perspectives on the role of business and sustainability and provide an opportunity for audience members to interact with panel members to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the development of a green economy.
