"Sustainability for Competitive Advantage" Keynote speaker Chris Laszlo '80 Introductions by President Al Bloom and Alex Ginsberg '08 The environmental and social impact a business has on the world around it is a rapidly growing source of competitive advantage. CEOs of some of the world's leading companies are now tackling global challenges such as climate change and the widening rich-poor gap, not as cost constraints but as business opportunities. Based on his new book, Sustainable Value, published by Stanford University Press in February 2008, Chris Laszlo '80 discusses sustainability-driven business leadership and emerging sustainability practices based on case studies at DuPont, Wal-Mart and other global industry leaders.
