Please join us for this fascinating and informative presentation by one of the Northwest's pioneers in sustainable business.

Ecopreneuring is a way of using people's desire to serve the planet and its people to inspire profitable innovation. It is also a way for people who care about these values to use business to serve the environment and social equity in bigger ways than they could do by other means. It is a win-win way to address the issues of sustainability.

Gifford Pinchot is President and co-founder of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, which offers an MBA that integrates sustainability and social responsibility with innovation and profit. BGI is one of the first graduate schools to weave sustainability throughout its entire curriculum, so that standard business subjects include ethics, cutting edge sustainability practices, and students' spiritual perspectives. For the last three years BGI has come on top of Net Impact's survey of business schools interested in socially responsible business. In August 2009 BGI was awarded the grant of accreditation by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools.
