Wharton/Bank of America Global Environmental Leadership Series

July 12, 2011, Volume 58, No. 01

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania announced a partnership with Bank of America to establish the Wharton/Bank of America Global Environmental Leadership Speaker Series. Hosted by the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership, the Speaker Series will feature a prominent global environmental leader as the keynote speaker during the annual event held in coordination with Wharton’s Global Alumni Forums, as well as several smaller, more focused companion speaker events on Wharton’s Philadelphia campus and other locations each year.

Dedicated to raising the public’s awareness of pressing business-and-environment issues, the Speaker Series will present high-profile individuals addressing issues of international concern. Throughout the Series, leaders spanning such diverse fields as business, academia, nonprofits, and government will share their perspectives on the latest ideas in business sustainability, including sustainable financial investment strategies, sustainable real estate development and the new energy economy. The first event was a panel discussion focusing on venture capital and sustainability at the 2011 Wharton Global Alumni Forum, in conjunction with the tenth anniversary of the establishment of the Wharton, San Francisco campus.
