Career Collectives: Sustainability Community

Sustainability is all about focusing on the triple bottom line, people, profit, and planet.  This means a company’s sole priority is not just making money, but ensuring business operations give back to those who helped make it all happen: the people and the planet.

Sustainability is important across all industries.  We only have one planet, and many companies damage it without regard, which inevitably hurts their reputation, and profits.  Are you trying to be more sustainable? Check out these resources for some inspiration:
