Our partners gain access to the dynamic thinkers, innovative ideas, and the world-class resources of MIT Sloan. Through our Sustainable Business and Leading Sustainable Systems action learning labs we’re able to match organizations with teams of students who are passionate about business strategies for sustainability. Working under the mentorship of an MIT faculty member, the student team helps organizations investigate sustainability issues in areas that include operations, supply chain, product development, and stakeholder engagement. Findings from their work help the host organization and our wider network to take actions that improve long-term social, environmental, and economic outcomes.
