Sustainability in business is not just about climate change. It’s about corporate social responsibility and institutionalized fairness. It’s about utilizing available resources with maximum efficiency and minimal waste. Most importantly, it’s about developing a long-term strategic business model for innovation, profitability and enduring success. The WCA has partnered with Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business to provide an on-line course in organizational sustainability for working professionals. The WCA’s goal is to train thought leaders with the necessary analytical tools to originate, market, and lead sustainability initiatives in a variety of professional contexts.
