She holds a BA in economics from Grinnell College (Phi Beta Kappa), a JD from University of Denver, and an ALM in environmental management from Harvard University Extension School (class marshal). Her educational work includes teaching Corporate Sustainability Strategy at Harvard University Ex-tension School, a course she helped develop in the fall of 2010. Suzanne's nonprofit management includes serving as finance chair for the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) board during its merger with the Carbon War Room. During that time, RMI tripled in size and impact and continues now as a leading organization helping the business community drive energy savings and reduce carbon emissions worldwide. Since 2006 Suzanne has served on the board of Presidio Graduate School (PGS), including board chair from 2015 to 2018, during a time of enormous transition for the school. Under Suzanne's leadership, the school entered a new partnership with Amity University, a leading nonprofit international university with campuses worldwide. This new venture greatly increases the impact of the PGS mission, which includes promoting business practices that recognize the importance of social justice. PGS awards MBAs and MPAs who are focused on sustainable management principles and was mentioned in The New York Times as the best MBA program to attend if you want to change the world.Suzanne is also the author of a companion book to this text, Pathways to Success: Case Studies for Mainstreaming Corporate Sustainability.
"Suzanne Farver has blessed us with a terrific review of the current landscape of some of the best tools and strategies for infusing sustainability into the lifeblood of any organization. It's the book I wished I had when I was struggling to deal with sustainability at the Fortune 500 company I worked for years ago." --William R. Blackburn, JD, Author of The Sustainability Handbook
