In the mid-1990s, a new framework, coined the "triple bottom line" was introduced to measure the degree to which an organization is being sustainable. By focusing performance on the connected dimensions of people, profits and planet, an organization can comprehensively evaluate its goals on pursuing sustainable growth. After an introduction on the importance of the three P's for organizational sustainability, three local panelists will present how their organizations embrace the P of Planet in order to better their own organizations and the community around them.

The panelist will include Mike Sharp, Vice President of Support Services, Genesis Health Systems; Bill Stoermer, Senior Communications Manager, Exelon Generation Company; and Laurie Zelnio, Director, Safety, Environment, and Product Standards, Deere & Company.

This event, sponsored by the College of Business, is part of St. Ambrose University's Sustainability Project, a year-long series examining our ability to sustain ecological systems through the arts, sciences and humanities.
