December 17 2019

Toronto – For the second year, Rotman Net Impact, a graduate student club focused on sustainability at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, is hosting the annual Rotman Sustainability Conference.

The daylong conference, which will be held at the Rotman School on January 29, will provide an opportunity to learn about diverse careers with meaningful social and environmental impact. Panel discussions will examine key issues in social innovation, sustainable finance, clean tech, and transitioning Canada to a low-carbon economy.

This year’s keynote speaker is Tabatha Bull, COO of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, with panel discussions being led by Rotman faculty members, Richard Blundell, Laura Doering, Sarah Kaplan and Jan Mahrt-Smith. Panelists will include leaders on sustainability, finance, clean tech and the environment from a wide range of business and social impact organizations including Cycle Toronto, Daniels Corporation, Community Food Centres Canada, National Aboriginal Trust Officers Association, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, and the University of Toronto.

Organized by Rotman Net Impact, the Rotman Sustainability Conference is generously supported by RBC and the Michael Lee-Chin Family Institute for Corporate Citizenship. The Institute is a research centre at the Rotman School that helps current and future business leaders integrate sustainability into business strategy and practices by developing and disseminating research, tools and curricula.
