The Sustainability Track is new to Boulder Startup Week and is led by Linda Moffat, the Founder & CEO of Sustainable Collaborations Group. Linda is passionate about the intersection of sustainability, business, technology and data management.
Sustainability is often defined as managing the triple bottom line – people, profit, planet. Sustainability covers a large range of different areas that are interconnected and require cross-collaboration. For example: Energy, Carbon, Water and Waste Management; the Built Environment and Building Performance; Transportation and Logistics; Manufacturing & Processes; Supply-chain; Cleantech / Green IT / Green Data Centers; Regulatory Issues, Compliance; Environmental, Health and Safety; Governance; Social Responsibility; Human Rights; Stakeholder Engagement; Communications internally and externally; Annual Reporting; Product Development – efficiency and innovation.
This track aims to bring an understanding and education to those interested, regarding the complex collaborations required and processes by which organizations manage their financial, social and environmental risks, obligations and opportunities by using sound practices and policies as core elements to create sustainable economic values. We have an incredible line-up of local professionals and organizations represented.

We hope to see you there!
I see that you are highlighting sustainability education as a part of this track and I wanted to get the Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities at CU Boulder on your radar. In our certificate program we train engineers to work in partnership with organizations in developing communities worldwide with the goal to create sustainable and appropriate solutions to meet people’s basic needs. I know that BSW is right around the corner, but I see CU is a sponsor. I’d love to find out if we could possibly still be included as one of the highlighted sustainability education programs?
