Pitt Center for Sustainable Business Celebrates 3 Year Anniversary
Congratulations to our Center for Sustainable Business (CSB) as it celebrates its 3-year anniversary in October 2022 with ongoing partnerships with 12 global and regional companies and expanding opportunities for students to advance sustainability in business, in the region, and around the world.
Founded in 2019 in the University of Pittsburgh’s Katz Graduate School of Business & College of Business Administration, the Pitt CSB helps companies and students learn how to leverage investments in sustainability.
“Through innovative research, specialized education and training, and critical thought leadership, the Center helps companies learn how to leverage their investments in sustainability to generate better business and societal outcomes,” said CB Bhattacharya, the H.J. Zoffer Chair in Sustainability and Ethics who leads the Center. “We also are teaching graduate and undergraduate students to act as ethically responsible leaders. Students learn how companies manage their people, planet, and profit so that all stakeholders may benefit from a long-term approach to the relationship between business, society, and the environment.”
