By Forward, Sustainably

Today we discuss the current state of sustainability at a state, national and global level; the evolution of sustainability in the private sector and academia; the most innovative things happening in sustainability and leaves listeners with key takeaways. We also discuss the then breaking news of the American Business Council’s “Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation” which vows commitments beyond stakeholders to include customers, employees, suppliers, communities and shareholders—a move toward stakeholder governance and sustainability for better business.

Our guest Tom Eggert wears many hats. He is the Founder and Emeritus Executive Director of the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council; Emeritus Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Sustainable Business; President of the Board of Wisconsin Microfinance; and former Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Green Tier Development Specialist.

Forward, Sustainably is produced by the University of Wisconsin Sustainable Manage Programs.
