October 15, 2013 – (Ann Arbor, MI). Robert Kuhn, President of New York-based sustainability consulting firm Kuhn Associates Sustainability Advisors, LLC, spoke to a group of business leaders and academics at the Southeast Michigan Sustainable Business Forum’s “Where Green Meets Black” event on the University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus on October 10, 2013. Kuhn also moderated a panel whose members addressed the realities of applying sustainability best practices in a variety of businesses. Kuhn’s formal presentation, “How Sustainable Business Practices Enhance Profitability and Attract Capital,” shed light on the eco-efficiency and social risk management practices that can lower costs, protect and enhance brand value. According to Kuhn, the future will see capital flowing readily to companies who embed sustainability into their businesses and will shy away from others.
