How do we create new business models, technologies, and production systems to ensure a more sustainable future?
Mitigating and adapting to climate change will require a fundamental transformation of industrialized and developing economies. The decisions that leaders make today will have a profound impact on future generations. Stanford GSB and Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability created the Stanford Initiative on Business and Environmental Sustainability to advance the field of sustainability management with new knowledge and new solutions to address these challenges.
Research Conference Series
We host a series of conferences to share cutting-edge research from Stanford GSB and the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability. These conferences cover all of the areas of scholarship across the two schools — from marketing to geophysics.
The series is designed to enhance the dialogue among researchers and those who put knowledge into practice. Each conference is led by Stanford faculty along with selected practitioners and faculty from other universities. In the Stanford Initiative on Business and Environmental Sustainability podcast, faculty leader William Barnett shares key takeaways from each conference.
