Sustainable Business Club

The goal of the UNC Sustainable Business Club is to engage with the sustainability sector in meaningful ways through programs ranging from our speaker series with clean-tech experts to our hands-on, interdisciplinary work with businesses through the Impact Project. By facilitating collaboration between students and leaders in the sustainability sector, we aim to serve as a central hub for all student-led innovation and triple-bottom line impact at UNC-Chapel Hill. Join us on our mission to become the ground-breaking leaders of tomorrow!

We are affiliated with the Kenan-Flagler Business School, but we welcome and highly encourage members of all majors to get involved. We see SBC as an avenue for anyone with a passion for environmental and social impact to make a tangible difference and see their ideas brought to life in actual organizations.
