Success in Sustainability: An Evolution from Good Idea to Corporate Requirement

April 18, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Success in Sustainability:

An Evolution from Good Idea to Corporate Requirement

Earth Month, April 2017 kicks off the celebration for EarthShare of Texas’ 25th anniversary.  We invite the public to join us and our member groups for our A Good Planet is Hard to Find  Roundtable Discussion Series taking place throughout 2017.  Our members collectively work to solve all of the various environmental and conservation challenges we face today.  In this series, they will share some of their stories, tell us how they got to where they are today, teach us how we can support their work, and do our own parts to live lightly on the Earth.

In the first event of our anniversary series Success in Sustainability: An Evolution From Good Idea to Corporate Requirement, four sustainability rock stars will, from their various vantage points, explore the evolution of sustainability and sustainable business practices.  Twenty-five years ago “sustainable business practices” and “sustainable design” were often considered too expensive or fringe concepts.  With rapid climate change, global migration, and aging power grids, these concepts have become mandatory practices in many industries.  Our members have performed critical roles in the turning of these corporate tides.  What are some of the important advances in policy change?  How do we keep policies and practices of sustainability from being co-opted by political rancor.  What are some practical ways for the average person live a more “sustainable” every-day life?  Join us for a lively discussion covering all of this and more!
