Why is sustainability important?

Sustainability is an opportunity for all businesses today, no matter their size or position in the marketplace, to make society stronger while also making a profit. The Haworth College of Business believes in shaping the mindsets and skills of future business leaders to be stewards of corporate sustainability.

Working through six principles outlined in the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) report, the college provides students with the skills and values needed to lead organizations sustainably. By instilling sustainable business practices today, future corporations can restore environmental quality and promote stable, healthy communities—which lead to better corporate cultures, more reliable products and greater long-term profitability.

View the PRME principles and learn how the Haworth College of Business is working toward providing the most comprehensive exposure to sustainability of any business school in the state of Michigan.
