14109 - Sustainability: Debating the Issues (Jade)
Monday, March 10, 2014, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
This seminar will help participants better understand the issues surrounding sustainability and sustainability practices. The focus of the seminar will be on the balance between environmental concerns and business. There is a clear need to balance the future welfare of the environment with the needs of the present. Businesses often believe that the use of excessive regulations restrain a firm’s ability to provide the economic growth needed to raise the standard of living for people in the present. Proponents of sustainability argue that improvements in environmental quality will not only increase standards of living for the current generation, but also for future generations.
