WHO WE ARE:
The Sustainable Business Club provides information, discussion, networking and careers support related to environmental business risks and opportunities. We aim to prepare Kellogg students to address issues such as resource scarcity, responsible operations, green brand equity, environmental markets and global risk management as they take on diverse leadership roles across the world.
OUR FOCUS AREAS:
- Careers: Ensure that all students interested in careers in sustainability have the support, encouragement and resources they need. We work closely with the Career Management Center to offer a variety of initiatives, including sustainability workshops and boot camps, networking opportunities with students and alumni, helping to bring relevant companies on campus for information sessions, resume and interview prep, and ongoing off campus recruitment support. More information about resources is available on the Careers page.
- Education: We are in a new era of business, one in which companies, consumers and policy makers are more aware of their negative externalities and companies are seeing the immense competitive advantage that sustainability strategies can give them. Given the importance of sustainability in business today, we work with Kellogg’s faculty to give build the knowledge of all students on the impact of environmental issues on business, through speaker events, academics, independent studies and social events. Check out the Academics page for more information about sustainability-focused classes at Kellogg.
- Greening Kellogg: It’s not enough to just talk about environmental sustainability. Therefore, we work with staff and other student clubs to encourage, implement, and improve environmentally sustainable practices at Kellogg. Check out the Greening Initiatives we’ve run. Also, take a look at the building vision for what will soon be Kellogg's new academic home.
- Collaboration: The Sustainable Business club works with the following Northwestern and Kellogg clubs on a regular basis as we strive for greater impact:
