Scheller College Organizes Radio Show on Sustainability

Howard Connell, managing director of Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business’ Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business, recently assembled a cross-section of sustainability experts for a panel discussion on Atlanta’s Business Radio X.

One of the goals of the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business is to connect students, research faculty, companies, and entrepreneurs together to create an environment where business-driven solutions to sustainability challenges can take shape and thrive.

Participants in the radio show included representatives from city government, community organizations, and businesses covering topics ranging from the sustainability goals of their organizations to ways in which they collaborate to expand and support best practices in corporate citizenship.

“I think the right resources and players are in place at different institutions for serious change to happen,” says Connell, a professor of the practice at Scheller College. “Atlanta is at a fulcrum point. We can show and enable opportunities that are there. It’s not just the right thing got do – it’s a business need.”

In addition to Connell, the radio-show participants included John Gardner, vice president and chief sustainability officer of Novelis, the world’s leading aluminum rolled products and aluminum recycling company; Robert Fairey, senior director of energy procurement & waste diversion at Cox Enterprises; Stephanie Stuckey Benfield, director of Atlanta’s Office of Sustainability; and Rohit Malhotra, founder and executive director of the Center for Civic Innovation in Atlanta.
