Interface, the carpet company, has published a list of major achievements from its sustainable business model. They include the use of 40 percent of raw materials from recycled or bio-based sources, its ReEntry program which reclaimed 28 million pounds of carpet from landfills, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 35 percent from a 1996 baseline. Interface has been tracking its environmental and social impacts for the last 17 years.

The Aspen Institute has announced the winners of the 2011 Business Society Case Competition for International MBA Students. Five finalist teams were chosen from 1,000 students at 25 business schools who analyzed the costs and benefits of expanding the U.S. presence of a Chinese renewable energy company. First place was awarded to the School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University of Waterloo, Ontario. Through its Business and Society Program, the Aspen Institute works with over 150 MBA programs in 28 countries.
