Sustainability-related issues are a topic currently making a significant impact on the world of business. In response, University of Iowa faculty, students, and entrepreneurs met to engage in dialogue on the issue and learn more about sustainable strategies through a business lens.

The May 10 and 11 Faculty Sustainability Summit brought together speakers from a variety of environmentally conscious companies, such as Patagonia, New Belgium Brewery, Organic Valley, Frontier Cooperative, National Cooperative Grocers Association, and Allsteel.
