In 2009, the John Molson Sustainable Business Group (JSG) and the MBA International Case Competition (MBA ICC) joined forces in an effort to make the MBA ICC a more environmentally and socially conscious competition. Over the years, the alliance has strengthened with the creation of a formally recognized position dedicated to sustainability throughout the competition. The goal of this position is to highlight sustainability as an essential tool for success in a rapidly changing business world, which is consistent with esteemed economist Jeff Rubin's positing that we must “recognize the limits to growth, and what sustainability really means for our economy" (The End of Growth, 2012). As a business school, they feel it is of utmost importance to embody what it truly means to consistently incorporate the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit into all of their operations.
Some of the ways they are upholding their sustainability principles during the competition include taking the following actions:
