Sustainability for Breakfast – B Corporations

November 30, 2012 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Thousands of visionary business leaders are building the foundation for a new economy with millions of high quality jobs and improved quality of life in communities around the world. To serve them, B Lab and the community of Certified B Corporations are working to support legislative change across the US to create a new kind of corporation called the benefit corporation, giving businesses the freedom and legal protection to pursue the triple bottom line and individual citizens something positive for which to advocate.

Join us at the November Sustainability for Breakfast to learn more about this growing trend and how this new type of company is using business to solve social and environmental problems. Understand more about the reasons why Calgary businesses are pursuing certification and the positive impacts they’re experiencing.

7:30 – 8:00 am Breakfast and networking

8:00-8:45 am Presentations from:

  • Dermot Hikisch, B Lab
