About the Event

The UConn School of Business is excited to host the Global Business Leadership in Sustainability Summit (GBLSS) on Friday, March 25, 2022 from 1 pm to 4pm at UConn’s School of Business on the Storrs campus. This half-day event will gather professionals, faculty, and students to discuss key sustainability topics for businesses. In addition we will highlight existing sustainability initiatives ongoing across the University of Connecticut. The summit aims to create a space to build productive relationships with sustainable business partners while continuing to educate and prepare our students.

The agenda will kick off with a Keynote Panel discussion featuring representatives from UConn, the public sector, and the corporate sector to respond to critical questions about sustainability in business. After the keynote, we will have breakout sessions focused on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) – how we do business sustainably and how we measure it. We will conclude the afternoon with a closing session to debrief on lessons learned, plan for the future, and connect with one another via a networking reception. Networking will be organized according to “affinity groups” which participants can choose upon registering.
