Sustainable Business Strategies

Our board member, Jacques Chirazi, will be presenting for our partners at the SDG&E Energy Innovation Center on August 26th.

Businesses are increasingly applying strategic management tools to incorporate considerations of sustainability into decision-making and operations. While some businesses incorporate sustainable practices because of an ethical conviction to do well for society and the environment, most are motivated to address pressures from stakeholders such as regulators, shareholders, customers and neighbors and to exploit knowledge and experience for long term competitive advantage. This seminar will examine how businesses develop and implement strategies to promote sustainability. Participants will examine roles and responsibilities of sustainable strategic managers and learn how to apply the tools of strategic business management to problems of sustainability. Participants will consider how managers apply leadership practices to promote sustainable practices in their organizations.

What you will learn in this session:

  • The seminar explores business strategies for achieving regional economic and environmental sustainability goals.
  • Understand natural capitalism, cradle-to-cradle design, and business environmental strategies
  • Examine how individuals, entrepreneurs, and local governments can facilitate organizational change
  • Learn about energy generations, smart grid infrastructure, and the built environment
  • Review the triple-bottom-line (economy, ecology, and equity)
  • We examine how improving processes can reduce health and safety, and increase profitability.
