This year, the Cornell Business Impact Symposium (CBIS) will be drawing student leaders and professionals together to explore the power of sustainability in business. The 21st century is seeing a rapid transformation in how companies conduct business. The term, “business as usual” has lost its meaning. Increasing demands for transparency, pressure for better product labeling and sourcing, and demands for authenticity are becoming the new norm. As a result, is sustainability playing a bigger role in business decisions? How is this impacting the bottom line of organizations?
Join us for a day of innovate and inspiring keynotes, presentations, and networking with industry leaders who are shaking up the private sector. Explore the topics of circular economy, impact investing, design thinking, sustainable supply chain, climate change, and much more.
Cost: $10/Cornell student (increases March 1, 2018), $20/non-Cornell student, $30/professional
