“Taking Sustainability Literally”

This inaugural Sustainability Solutions Café will explore the challenge of incorporating multiple dimensions of sustainability assessment into modern business practice without resorting to meaningless corporate “green-washing”.
Come participate in café-style small group discussions, initiated and framed by Mark McElroy’s concepts of vital capitals and context-based sustainability metrics. Cabot Creamery Director of Sustainability, Jed Davis ’83, T’85, will share how his company has used such metrics to “take sustainability literally” to the benefit of the their bottom line, employees, customers, and the environment.
