Since 2008, the Smeal College of Business has been experimenting with how to better incorporate broader social and environmental costs, risks and opportunities into core business fundamentals.  Our aim is not sustainable business. Our target is to advance the business of sustainability:  social and environmental innovation tied to business strategy, competitiveness, financial performance and long-term value creation.

On our Triple Bottom Lion blog, we feature the events, happenings, and voices of the Center for the Business of Sustainability. And we provide access to resources and tools that we like.


I invite you keep up by subscribing, sharing your ideas and challenging us to go further. Finally, our work in the business school is part of a university-wide effort at Penn State University. See the button below to learn more about efforts across the institution.
