Bard MBA Sustainable Business Series - March 5, 2012

A Conversation with Hunter Lovins

Monday, March 5, 2012

Thank you for your interest in this event. We have reached capacity for our evening of conversation with Hunter Lovins. To be placed on the waiting list, please email Katie at kvansant@bard.edu.

Join the Bard MBA in Sustainability, Bard Center for Environmental Policy, and Women's Network for a Sustainable Future as we host a conversation with sustainable business pioneer Hunter Lovins. For more than three decades, Hunter Lovins has been a leading intellectual force behind the sustainability revolution in business. Hunter helped pioneer the idea that saving the planet need not conflict with profitability, and indeed, that profitable solutions were ultimately the only kind that could save the planet. Through her many books (including Natural Capitalism, and most recently Climate Capitalism), numerous successful start-ups, years of business consulting, and tireless public speaking, Hunter has been a driving force behind changing global dialog, and concrete business practice, in the direction of global sustainability.  Bard MBA and CEP Director Eban Goodstein will engage Hunter in an evening of conversation on sustainable business. Following the conversation, there will be a discussion period open to questions from the audience.
