Location: Liu Institute for Global Issues, 6476 North West Marine Drive

Description: Chasing Sustainability is a full day business sustainability conference held annually in late October and is the flagship event of CUS Sustainability. The conference is designed to:

Educate participants using concrete examples of sustainability practices in various businesses
Inspire participants by showing there is an extensive overlap between keeping our planet in check and improving the bottom line
Connect participants with like-minded peers but also professionals and academics

Our interactive workshops, panels, networking opportunities and casual atmosphere allows us to reach these three objectives. Feedback from past participants show that the quality of our sessions, as well as the conversational environment, stand out in particular. In 2011 and 2012, Chasing Sustainability had approximately 100 attendees per year – a drastic change from the first time this conference ever ran in 2007. The topic of environmental awareness is clearly becoming more and more important in academia and the workforce.
