A look back at ten years of carbon-tracking at Gustavson

The Gustavson School of Business made a commitment over 10 years ago to measure and report on its carbon emissions and advance the process of greening its operations.

The Centre for Social and Sustainable Innovation

The Centre for Social and Sustainable Innovation, (CSSI) at the Gustavson School of Business, was formed to bring sustainability and social responsibility into the education, research, operations and culture of our school.

The CSSI helps staff and faculty integrate sustainability and social responsibility into all of Gustavson’s educational offerings. From core courses to international exchanges, we offer practical support to meet the school’s commitment to the United Nations Global Compact’s Principles for Responsible Management Education.

We support faculty in their research by backing their grant proposals, hiring post doctoral fellows, sponsoring their attendance at conferences and celebrating their research accomplishments. Reducing our environmental footprint is an ongoing effort as well. We conduct an annual carbon audit and run educational programs and competitions to reduce our environmental impact across the school. The result of our efforts in these three areas can be seen in the Gustavson culture. Care for the environment, social structure of our community and governance of businesses is apparent throughout the school.
