Sustainable Innovation through Green Chemistry Case Competition Promotes Cross-Faculty Collaboration
On January 16-17, 2015, the Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management (MDIIM), CREATE in Green Chemistry, and the Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (TISED), jointly a workshop and case competition on Sustainable Innovation through Green Chemistry.
Are you interested in combining your managerial and business knowledge with a deep understanding of the interlinked economic, social and ecological challenges of achieving sustainability? Did you know that you can graduate with a McGill Desautels BCom degree while also having a solid foundation in the fundamentals of ecological and social systems? If so, please join us to learn about Desautels’ Managing for Sustainability programs, course offerings, and possible career paths in sustainability.
Looking to apply your budding management skills towards something meaningful this summer? The Social Economy Initiative (SEI) invites you to apply to be part of the 2015 cohort of the Impact Internship Program!
The SEI Impact Internship Program (SEI IIP) places exceptional students, primarily in local Montreal-based social enterprises, to take on special projects and contribute to social impact and positive social change within the non-profit sector.

Dear MBA students,
We wish to bring your attention to an opportunity to participate in the 3rd Annual Sustainable Innovation through Green Chemistry Workshop and Case Competition, January 16-17, 2015. The event will bring masters-level students and practitioners from the areas of management, chemistry, and engineering, to learn about sustainable development and product design. Students will then apply their knowledge and compete as integrated teams.
The Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management (MDIIM)’s mandate is to address complex, systemic challenges through an integrative approach to management. Such an approach breaks down disciplinary barriers, embraces multiple perspectives and encourages holistic, context-sensitive thinking about organizations. Integrated management constructively faces the tensions of different perspectives on value to enact strategies that transcend rather than accept trade-offs.
"Rapid innovation and growth in renewable energy", a talk by MIT's Jessica Trancik
Renewable energy technologies have sustained high growth rates over the past 30 years , with solar and wind energy production growing at roughly 30% per year, due to a combination of technology cost improvement and public policy incentives.
Talks by MIT speaker John Reilly and CEA speaker Jim Burpee
"Prospects and Challenges for High Penetration of Renewable Energy", John Reilly, MIT
Renewables electricity sources are a seemingly attractive low-carbon option to substitute for coal or gas generation. Regional availability of high quality wind and solar resources varies, but at least in the United States, most regions have significant resources. Expanding the options to biomass, hydroelectricity, and geothermal creates greater opportunities.
