We’ve all heard about the carbon footprint as it relates to the environmental impact of corporations, businesses and other organizations. Brad Bechtold and John Meindl look to another anatomical metaphor to describe how organizations are redefining their sustainability practices. In an article the two published in Greenville Business Magazine, they say, “Sustainability is evolving from a a limits or negative perspective–the concept of the environmental footprint of an organization–to a positive growth-through-values perspective–the concept of the broader “handprint” of an organization.” Bechtold is executive director of Furman University Continuing Education, and Meindl is executive-in-residence at Furman’s Center for Corporate and Professional Development. The story appears on page 20.
