11 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur What Needs to be Done to Achieve a Sustainable World? Others framings –Senge, et. al. –... –…

12 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Resources of Jesuit Business Schools Special resources –Jesuit philosophy –spiritual viewpoint nature of the schools religious traditions diversity of faculty –Fordham as an example spiritually-friendly environment –in which discussion of spiritual issues is considered normal and not out of line

13 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Resources of Jesuit Business Schools Non-special resources –talent skills in organizational change skills in strategic management

14 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Where is the Best Match? Regarding consumption –Most of the worlds consumption is done by a small fraction of the worlds population –Those who consume in excess must consume less teaching the emptiness of affluenza –Those without want (need!) to consume more

15 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Where is the Best Match? Regarding production –Most production is done in unsustainable, non-renewable ways –We must find renewable ways of production that do not deplete resources or pollute the planet stewardship of the earth teaching cradle-to-cradle

16 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Where is the Best Match? Regarding population –The implications of 9.5 billion people pressing on the planets resources by 2050 –We must find ways to limit population growth to a level consistent with sustainable production and consumption or find ways to dramatically increase sustainable production and consumption to meet a much larger world population

17 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Where is the Best Match? Regarding population –A sticky political issue the problem is and will be especially acute in the poorest parts of the world –in the first world birth rates are essentially at or below replacement level –the fastest population growth is in the third world –A sticky moral/ethical issue now we limit population by war and starvation how should population be limited?

18 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Where is the Best Match? Regarding population –A sticky Catholic issue the relationship of sexuality and reproduction beliefs about the moment of the beginning of life –Birth control, abortion the relationship of the size of the flock to the Churchs power and wealth –Perhaps we have already fulfilled the biblical injunction to go forth and multiply, so now it is time to do a bit of subtraction!

19 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Where is the Best Match? Special opportunities –Regarding other faiths the possibility of Jesuit business schools as leaders and/or models for schools in other faith- based traditions the possibility of moving various faiths from emphasizing their differences to emphasizing their common ground around sustainability the ability to reach fundamentalist groups

20 Hollwitz, Stoner, Werner IAJBS 2009 – Jamshedpur Where is the Best Match? Special opportunities –Regarding population perhaps only a Catholic institution can have a major influence in reducing population growth –Like Nixon opening up China
