Ethics and Sustainability

Profit from Doing Good

Sustainability is more than recycling or avoiding Styrofoam cups. 21st Century Sustainability is about:

  1. Creating a long-term strategy for increased shareholder value
  2. Respecting our natural resources
  3. Building trust in your organization as a community member
  4. Becoming a great employer, vendor and customer

This seminar discusses the specific steps the accounting/finance department can take to lead the way in creating a sustainable 21st century organization.
