Roger Saillant, PhD, Executive Director of the Fowler Center for Sustainable Value at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University, will speak to the AACSB sustainability conference about the Fowler Center's work in the community.
One of the primary objectives at the Fowler Center for Sustainable Value at the Weatherhead School of Management is to push business beyond just being "less bad" or compliant, and instead changing the direction and way business is carried out, explains Beau Daane, Fowler Center Manager. In addition, the Center "leverages interdisciplinary scholarship and practice to help leaders capitalize on new profitable business opportunities to solve the world's growing social and environmental problems," and focuses its activities in both scholarship and outreach.
The roots to a sustainable business world start in the classroom, where we shape the next generation of responsible leadership. In order to provide students with the necessary skills, programs must integrate corporate social responsibility, ethics, and other special initiatives into their curricula. Sustainable business has become a strong standard across industries, not just in terms of being “green,” but also by being socially and ethically responsible.
