Description

The Time is Now... To set BHAG Goals and Drive Change in Large Organizations

Steve Levitsky has been the VP of Sustainability at Perdue Farms, the 4thlargest poultry processor in the USA and largest organic poultry grower in the world, for the last four years. Working on UNSDGs, Perdue has set big hairy audacious goals to meet by 2022. Why 2022? Why not 2025 or 2030? Because the time is now to address environmental and social issues. Perdue has internal scorecards for product, people, planet, and profit. Steve will talk about transforming the Planet scorecard to address both internal short-term and external long-term goals, and where Perdue is at on its journey to becoming a sustainable company and being the most trusted name in food and agriculture

The CSL will be hosting twelve Sustainability Showcases this fall to make connections between faculty research, personal and professional interest and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while broadening the discourse surrounding sustainability. Speakers are invited to give a thirty-minute talk, answer questions and hang around to mingle with attendees.

This year, the theme for the showcase series is: The Time is Now.

Events are on Fridays 12 - 1:30 pm, are held in 233AB HUB and include lunch for RSVP'd guests.
