Columbia University, Low Library, Faculty Room

Join us for a book launch and reception for “Sustainability Management: Lessons from and for New York City, America and the Planet” a new book by Dr. Steven Cohen, director of the Master of Science in Sustainability Management, executive director of the Columbia University’s Earth Institute, professor in the practice of public affairs at the School of International and Public Affairs.

In addition to hearing about Cohen’s new book, this event will provide the opportunity to learn about the growing field of sustainability management as well as meet members of the program’s faculty and current students.

The book practically addresses sustainability management issues and provides a means to address them in any organization. Directed at policymakers, students, scholars and managers from both the private and public sectors, Cohen makes the case that environmental protection and economic development are mutually interdependent. Utilizing examples from New York City, and all over the world, Cohen illustrates how sustainable practices can be successfully incorporated into all aspects of organizational management, moving sustainability from the realm of theory into practice. He examines how a host of sustainability efforts, ranging from energy to waste management, can positively impact businesses, the global economy and the planet.
