Implementing Sustainability Strategies

Companies sometimes regard sustainability as "metaphoric low-hanging fruit," says moderator Peter Senge, and reach for a few easy targets to achieve cosmetic improvements. His three panelists describe how their corporations are attempting to embrace sustainability as more than just another high-profile, low-impact initiative that "goes right into an overloaded bucket."

Climate Change: Challenges and Opportunities for Business and Society

If "organizations are the way that ideas change the world," as MIT Sloan Dean Dave Schmittlein puts it, then look to institutions like MIT, which has wrapped its arms around the issues of energy and climate change, to help make sustainability real and attainable. The Dean describes some showcase work launched at MIT, including a long-lasting battery for electric cars, and MIT's own green campus efforts.

Using power for good

Mahatma Gandhi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world." That's not necessarily a quote you'd expect to hear from the CEO of a global service company speaking to business school students. But that's precisely the message Marilyn Carlson Nelson brought to MIT Sloan during her March 2006 Dean's Innovative Leader Series appearance, presented here. Nelson heads the Carlson Companies, a privately held parent corporation of global integrated service companies. She's also a widely recognized leader in corporate social responsibility. Carlson Companies, she said, is very much attuned to the implications of its operations for the environment and people across the globe. She urged students to take the same path, asking them to focus on business models aimed at both profitability and improving the world. "You have a tremendous opportunity to use power for good," she said. Nelson is introduced by MIT Sloan Professor Gabriel Bitran.
