Event description

Description

The Southeast Michigan Sustainable Business Forum invites your participation in a daylong workshop on sustainable business practices and triple-bottom-line (People-Profit-Planet) business strategies! This event will see the congregation of Southeast Michigan's business leaders come together to explore modern issues of business sustainability. Not only will this provide great networking, but the workshop will include plenary sessions and three breakout tracks.

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Stuart L. Hart, will give a talk on "Driving Innovation from the Base of the Pyramid." Dr. Hart is the S.C. Johnson Chair Emeritus in Sustainable Global Enterprise and Professor Emeritus of Management at Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management. Dr. Hart is one of the world’s top authorities on the implications of environment and poverty for business strategy. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, he is “one of the founding fathers of the ‘base of the pyramid’ economic theory.”

The break out tracks will be built around the three bottom lines of people, planet, and profit.

  • People: Business Leadership, Assessments, Ownership Models, Self Awareness, Community Engagement, and more!
  • Planet: Circular Economy, Green Chemistry, Life Cycle Assessments, Systems Thinking, and more!
  • Profit: Efficiency, Quality Systems, Energy/Waste/Water, Technology, and much more!!

A “vendor mall” will feature small local businesses that are creating triple-bottom-line value. The event will include breakfast foods and lunch. Sign up today and lock in your commitment to sustainable business in Southeast Michigan!!
