Sustainable Development: Beyond Carbon

Trees and LakesThe La Trobe Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Sustainability) invites you to attend a Business Forum. Sustainable Development: Beyond Carbon on the 21 February 2012.

Sustainable development is being corralled by the carbon accounting debate, but it needs to engage with issues much broader than concerns about carbon emissions. Organisations have the opportunity to contribute to other environmental imperatives and social issues whilst maintaining their social licence to operate.

The Forum will bring together experts in sustainable development from industry and academia to provide insight into achieving long term improvement for society and institutions and has been organised through the Office of the PVC (Sustainability)'s La Trobe Institute for Social and Environmental Sustainability.

Participants will:
•    discuss climate change response in Australia and internationally;
•    consider the broader approaches to sustainable development beyond the environmental issues and,
•    promote partnerships between government, business and society.

Who should attend:
Business Leaders, Community and Government Leaders, Policy Makers, Sustainability and Corporate Citizenship Practitioners, NGO leaders, Human Resource Executives, Business Strategists

The program will commence at 9:00 am with registration beforehand and conclude by 4:30 pm.

Key Themes
Social and environmental impacts of renewable energy and carbon
Business, human rights and links to community development.
