March 14: Environmental impact
Green Liaison sustainability lecture focuses on creating a personal sustainability plan
12:36 p.m., March 13, 2012--The question of how to live a sustainable life will be the heart of the next lunchtime Green Liaison Sustainability Lecture Series session on Wednesday, March 14, from noon to 1 p.m., in the Gallery at the Perkins Student Center.
Rich Chapas, adjunct faculty of business administration in the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics, will lead a discussion about individual value chains and the choices individuals make, from purchasing and logistics to product usage and disposal.
Using the framework of the triple bottom line, participants will evaluate how economics, the environment and society are integrated into their lives and will create a personal sustainability plan to govern future choices.
