GreenBiz U brings sustainability experts to ASU community

green-biz-university-forum-studentsGreenBiz U, a shadow conference of the 2015 GreenBiz Forum, brings sustainability business, education and thought leaders to ASU for a discussion of the latest trends, challenges and opportunities in sustainable business. The experts will cover topics ranging from portable solar electronics to the State of Green Business report, which will be discussed during the GreenBiz Forum in Paradise Valley. GreenBiz U is part of the second annual Sustainability Solutions Festival, a program of the Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives. It marks the first campus presentation by Sheila Bonini, who was named CEO of The Sustainability Consortium, a multi-stakeholder nonprofit organization that translates scientific information into business practice, last fall. "This is an extraordinary collaboration with far-ranging impact,” said Joel Makower, chairman and executive editor of GreenBiz Group, Inc. “By leveraging our collective networks and knowledge bases, we are convening an unparalleled group of speakers and attendees that will make this week a truly exceptional opportunity for knowledge sharing and networking among the sustainable business community."
