Welcome back to campus! For those who are new, first we would like to welcome you to Carolina. Although this semester looks quite different, we are here to support you. Second we would like to formally introduce ourselves as the Sustainable Business Club. Our mission is simple, to educate you, the future leaders of business and beyond, on sustainability. We are committed to the well-being of both economic and ecological systems. We support the club, university, and community doing business that protects, preserves, and enhances the living systems that sustain local business. To do this, we plan on engaging with you throughout the semester through a variety of events that we will share with you later on.

History

The Sustainable Business Club (SBC) was established officially in Fall 2019. We are affiliated with Kenan-Flagler Business School and welcome all majors. We have been slowly gaining momentum and visibility among the Carolina community while battling the complexities of COVID-19 as a new club. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved and make an impact. First being that there will be a leadership change occurring in December if you would like to be a part of the team. Second, as a new club we are eager to hear your ideas about ways to incorporate sustainability and educate those around us. So please if you have any ideas, reach out!

Purpose/Mission

The Sustainable Business Club of Kenan-Flagler Business School is committed to the well-being of both economic and ecological systems. We envision the Sustainable Business Club, university, and community doing business that preserves, protects, and ultimately enhances the living systems that sustain local business and the larger human economy. To do this, we will take responsibility and educate our affiliates on sustainable business practices by facilitating discussion with neighboring companies and engaging in activities to promote a sustainable economy for future generations. We will pursue these steps with a commitment to continuous improvement.

Communication Fall 2020

This semester we will be communicating with you through the newsletter. The purpose of the newsletter is to educate you on sustainable events happening in the world and in our community. We will also use this newsletter to inform you on events happening around Carolina and the Undergraduate Business Program, including guest speakers, career-broadening discussions, personal development workshops, and more! In the next week, we will be announcing a project that we are looking to work with students on so stay tuned! You can also follow us on Insta for fun/inspirational promo at uncsbc.

Commitment to DEI:

The SBC is committed to creating an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated. All members of our community should have the same access to opportunities, be treated equitably and respectfully, and contribute fully to the success of our community. We want all members of our community to be welcomed, valued and feel a true sense of belonging. We welcome all identities, including – but not limited to – nationality, race, ethnicity, ability, socioeconomic status, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, heritage and veteran status. We seek to share ideas, learn from each other and gain understanding so that we can reach our full potential.
