NEW YORK, NY-October 10, 2012 The Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College will host an all-day professional meeting focusing on best practices to implement environmental sustainability in the workplace. On October 19, conference attendees will watch a live video broadcast of the SIOP Leading Edge Consortium held in New Orleans, and participate in work sessions beginning at 9:30 a.m. Attendees will also have the opportunity to use Twitter and Facebook to interact with the consortium presenters.

Organizations are increasingly concluding that environmental sustainability is central to their missions. As organizations transform to minimize, mitigate, and neutralize their environmental impact, I-O psychology is uniquely positioned to aid in these efforts. This meeting will bring together an interdisciplinary team of experts and keynote speakers from industry, psychological research, the environmental sciences, and consulting. Sessions will address both interdisciplinary aspects and how science and practice can contribute, the business case for environmental sustainability, and how sustainability can become a competitive advantage, as well as specific issues relevant to implementation in organizations. Organizations at the cutting edge of environmental sustainability practices will report on their experiences with interventions to make their operations more sustainable through human resources.

Interested professionals are welcome to attend, and can register online at www.siop.org/lec/2012/virtual.aspx
