The PROMISE of a Systems Approach to Sustainability

In this webinar, MIT Sloan’s Jason Jay will give an overview of the PROMISE framework, that analyzes sustainability at Personal, Relational, Organizational, Market, Institutional, Social, and Environmental levels. This framework is the basis for MIT Sloan’s systemic approach to sustainability strategy, and is the centerpiece of their Strategies for Sustainable Business executive education course, offered in March and October of 2015.
