SUSTEX

Texas A&M University-Central Texas’ Inaugural Summit on Sustainability
March 20-22, 2019 in Killeen, Texas, USA

The goal of the SUSTEX is to bring leaders from academia, the private sector, and government together in a unique, personalized environment to reflect on and discuss the present challenges and successes in advancing sustainable business practices and education. The inaugural theme reflects a major strategic initiative within the College of Business Administration at A&M-Central Texas, to embed sustainability into the curriculum through the newly launched M.S. in One Planet Leadership. A&M-Central Texas is also proud to be a founding One Planet Business School in the One Planet Education Networks. OPEN consists of business schools committed to embedding sustainability and social responsibility into their teaching, service, and scholarship, as well as into the practices of their respective institutions. 

Due to the broad scope and length of travel for some, we have activities spread out over three days, some of which will appeal to all and others more focused on certain groups. A tentative schedule is linked here.
Thursday is designed for everyone and should be a great time to learn and interact. We are excited to have the following the following internationally known speakers committed thus far:

Thomas Jelley, Vice President at Sodexo Group: https://www.linkedin.com/in/trjelley/ 
Tony Cooke, Serial Entrepreneur and CEO of OPEN:  https://www.linkedin.com/in/tonycooke/
