"Planet, People and Profit. Triple Bottom Line Sustainability"
Thursday, October 16 in Wallace Hall 012, 12:30-1:30pm
RSVP Required: https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/juljohn/248494
Dr. Dorothy Paun’s presentation will provide insights on how “triple bottom line” sustainability entails more than a traditional single “bottom line” focus on profitability.
