Established in 2003, the Desautels Business Conference on Sustainability (DBCS) is a student‐initiated and student‐run annual conference borne through business students answering the increasingly pressing call for action in the environmental and social pheres of our business world. The conference invites leading experts from corporations, nongovernment organizations and academia to speak to students and provide them with the tools and knowledge they need to help ensure a sustainable future. DBCS focuses on the three realms of sustainability that affect and are affected by business practices: social, economic and environmental. The conference consists of several different components each working in tandem with our mission. Allaspects of the event are designed to create and strengthen a culture of sustainability within both the McGill, and Montreal communities. Workshop presentations, keynote speakers, and the sustainability fair educate conference participants, while interactive workshops, and speaker panels engage them in creating real and applicable solutions to our growing environmental problems.
