Speakers to talk about B Corporations, sustainable economy
The Center for Earth Leadership will host a presentation in Portland in October regarding the pursuit of a sustainable economy and society.
Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. at Stoel Rives law firm, 900 S.W. Fifth Ave., Suite 2600, in downtown Portland, will present a view from inside two of Oregon’s B Corporations (businesses specifically operated to pursue a positive impact on society and the environment).
Bamboo Sushi is the first independent restaurant in the United States to be certified by the Marine Stewardship Council for its devotion to using sustainable seafood, while the Joinery only builds furniture with sustainable wood.
Together, the two will provide a glimpse into how businesses make decisions to serve employees, the community, and the environment, in addition to the bottom line.
