The World Environment Center (WEC),
in partnership with SC Johnson and the Ingersoll Rand Foundation,
has launched a major new initiative entitled Preparing
Business Leaders for a Sustainable Future. The SC Johnson, Ingersoll Rand Foundation and WEC initiative has
three major goals: 1) Accelerate the sharing of business strategies,
best practices and case studies from companies to the core curriculum of
leading business and engineering schools; 2) Provide students with
greater opportunities to work with companies as part of their formal
university training; and 3) Enable companies to identify talented
potential employees well in advance of campus recruiting.
SC Johnson and the Ingersoll Rand Foundation are together investing $350,000 in the initiative over the next two years.
