Dear Conference Participants and Presenters,
This website is designed to facilitate all

and contrast U.S. and European corporate policies and best
practices on the theme of sustainable development in the life

The colloquium organizers and academic committees
look forward to an intense and focused exchange of views,
presentation of innovative approaches and research which will
shed light on this critical intersect. The October 2006 Atlanta-based
colloquium is the first of a series with a followup to be
held in the region of Lorraine, France in 2007.
It is our intent to publish selected papers
and presentations in a proceedings book and in a special issue
of an international business journal to enrich a growing body
of policy and management literature.
Atlanta, as the colloquium site, is a vibrant
regional economic capital exemplifying many of the challenges
and opportunities raised by sustainable development corporate
initiatives on the threshold of this new century.
We are at your disposal for any information
you may require and look forward to interacting.
