While organizations have attended to Social, Environmental and Economic performance for
decades, it is traditionally economic performance that receives attention. Sustainability is a
revolutionary business model in that it elevates social and environmental performance to the
same level of economic performance, unlocking a vault of hidden opportunities. In other words,
instead of simply focusing on a single bottom line of economic performance, with token social
and environmental initiatives, the sustainable business model focuses on the triple bottom line
of People, Planet and Profits to enhance overall performance.

This half-day, interactive workshop cuts through all the rhetoric and clears the air around
Sustainability. It provides attendees with a clear understanding of Sustainability while introducing
the leading thinkers, tools and core concepts driving a grass roots revolution that is changing the
landscape of global commerce. Focusing on real world examples illustrates the strong business
case for Sustainability and why organizations across the globe racing to become the next
Sustainable Organization.

The message is simple, Sustainability is a better way to make a bigger profit and this workshop
is designed to inspire people to think about the world, their relationship to it and their ability to
influence it in an entirely new way.

Attitudes of customers, employees, and shareholders are changing as they become more aware
of the importance of Sustainability. Clear indicators show they are increasingly attracted to firms
who respect people, the environment, and are committed to the improvement of sustainable
processes. This workshop makes clear how moving toward Sustainability will meet these
demands while at the same time realizing cost savings and driving revenue growth.
