Sumas Building

"I support initiatives like the Sustainability Management School because I find the work that is being done and the innovation it brings invaluable. It's really crucial in this day and age to move away from blaming and shaming, and to focus on innovation instead. I believe that this School provides an important step towards teaching people how to do so."
