The Sustainability Initiative runs, supports, and promotes events throughout the school-year. We are eager to support the efforts of MIT faculty, students, and alumni, so if you have an event you would like to showcase on our website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also promote a small number of events outside of MIT each year that are of high interest and value to our constituencies; if you are running an event that we should know about, please contact email@example.com.

Kickoff Sustainability Initiative Lunch Series of the Year
Kickoff Sustainability Initiative Lunch Series of the YearE62-262 –
Join us for an information session on the Sustainability Initiative. The lunch will include an overview of the Certificate Requirements, as well as opportunities to get involved, and an introduction to programming and job networking opportunities for the year.
Network Based Job SearchE62-262 –
Sustainability, as an emerging field, rarely shows itself through the on-campus “manufactured market” of MBA recruiting. The most interesting opportunities in the space often occur through “the market you make” or networked job search. This session will feature the diverse set of tools available to students seeking social impact jobs. It will carefully explore Katie Kross’s 2x2 matrix of traditional vs. sustainability-oriented roles in traditional vs. sustainability-oriented companies. Life in each quadrant of that matrix feels quite different. Are they appropriate for people with different orientations and at different stages of career?
Featured Speaker: Sue Kline, MIT Sloan Career Development Office – Co-Director
New Metrics Conference 2014Royal Sonesta Hotel –
As the definition of value continues to evolve, the demand for business to demonstrate its ability to create value of various forms for all stakeholders – and not just profit for shareholders – is increasing, and the question of how this value is identified, measured and communicated becomes paramount. This 2-day, in-depth discussion with some of sustainability's top minds examined leading-edge work that is expanding the way business creates, quantifies, and manages the value it delivers through the metrics it adopts. http://www.sustainablebrands.com/events/newmetrics14
