Four-day seminar examines how companies can be sustainable and profitable

Aug. 16 /CSRwire/ - CHESTNUT HILL - August 16, 2007 - The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship is collaborating with the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto to present the Sustainable Enterprise Academy (SEA), an executive seminar that provides senior executives in business, government and civil society with the vision, education, tools, and support needed to champion sustainable development in their organizations.

The Sustainable Enterprise Academy will be held October 15-18 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in conjunction with the Faculty of Management at Dalhousie University. Seminars are designed for senior executives and delivered by internationally acclaimed speakers and an international faculty, who address critical issues of the day. The SEA program combines formal chaired presentations, discussions with leading experts, case studies, simulations, and learning team sessions involving participants and the faculty. The Academy also provides events and training on specific aspects of sustainability, and the Academy's Alumni Network supports the ongoing work of seminar graduates.

SEA has been offering its Business Leader Seminars since 2000 on a semi-annual basis and has an Alumni Network of about 400 graduates.

Participants explore and debate strategic issues such as:

  • The environmental, social, and economic drivers for sustainability in business;

  • Business and government roles in global sustainability;

  • Opportunities and threats facing business;

  • Drivers and sustainable opportunities in emerging markets

  • Management tools for sustainable business development;

  • Scenarios for sustainable business in the 21st Century;

  • The business case for sustainable development;

  • Role of government - as practitioners, policy setters and enablers of sustainable development;

  • Personal development and corporate learning;

  • The new triple bottom line.

    "Collaborating with York University and Dalhousie allows Boston College to extend its influence among business, government and civil society leaders who are readjusting their long-term strategies to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century," said Chris Pinney, director of executive education for the Boston College Center, which is part of the Carroll School of Management. The Center has been a leader in executive training for 25 years and has worked with thousands of professionals who are responsible for managing their company's role in society.
