Building companies that last – A podcast interview with Michael Hopkins, editor-in-chief of the MIT Sloan Management Review
Sustainability is not a passing fad. That is the message that emerged from a ground-breaking 2009 global survey of 1,500 executives and managers for a Special Report on “The Business of Sustainability” by MIT Sloan Management Review with knowledge partner, Boston Consulting Group.
“If you want an organization to last then everything else has to last as well,” says Michael Hopkins, editor-in-chief of the MIT Sloan Management Review.
In an exclusive podcast interview with RBC, Hopkins talks about the survey results providing further insight to why sustainability matters as well as many other areas including:
What environmental regulation can we expect?
Is sustainability a source of competitive advantage?
Will government be a leader or a follower of business in sustainability?
Why does the ability to collaborate matter for organizations trying to become more environmentally sustainable?
Why do your employees matter when it comes to sustainable business strategy?
What skills does your team need to be successful?
