The Gerald I. Susman Sustainability Leadership Award is now one of the Smeal College of Business's Alumni Awards.

Nominees should demonstrate a commitment to sustainability through their professional and/or volunteer accomplishments.
According to the Smeal Alumni Awards website, nominees' achievements should support the college's strategic goal of accelerating the integration of sustainability in business. As you consider nominations, please keep in mind Smeal College of Business’ definition of sustainability includes business activities that address social and economic injustice and/or those directed toward environmental problems. The college’s complete definition for sustainability is: “the way companies manage financial, social, and environmental risks and opportunities to ensure resiliency over time, creating markets, communities, and businesses that thrive because they are intimately connected to healthy economic, social, and environmental systems."
