On Tuesday Apr 10, 2012 at 02:00 PM EDT Barb Steele will host a one hour webinar that is designed to help businesses make more sustainable choices. The webinar specifically addresses the topic of “Why do businesses still make poor decisions when it comes to sustainability?”
Understanding why we do or do not engage in sustainable behavior can be addressed from a variety of perspectives: values, beliefs and norms, for example.
In the report Making Sustainable Choices: A Guide for Managers, published by the Network for Business Sustainability in February 2012, authors Joseph Arvai, Victoria Campbell-Arvai and Piers Steel outline how decisions are made and how sustainable choices can be reached.
By joining this webinar, you’ll hear co-author Joseph Arvai, the Svare Chair in Applied Decision Research at the University of Calgary, discuss highlights from the report, including:
1) How sustainability decisions are – and aren’t – like other decisions
2) What decisions are most susceptible to bias and error
3) How to translate decisions into action
4) What techniques can help make complex decisions easier
