Karachi School for Business and Leadership (KSBL) had the privilege to present the KSBL City Campus building project at the AASHE (Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education) Conference 2011 held from 9 – 12 October in Pennsylvania, USA. The opportunity was a great recognition for KSBL as well as for Pakistan with reference to building a sustainable business school campus that respects and preserves the environment, selected from over 1000 entries from around the world.
The AASHE conference, which is held annually, showcases educational institutions pursuing the best industry practices for sustainability in the fields of teaching, research, operations, and public engagement, making this event a platform to disseminate knowledge and best practices and promote resource sharing to the member schools and institutions around the world.
Representing KSBL at the conference was KSBL Dean Robert Wheeler. Dean Wheeler showcased the application of sustainability to KSBL project. He indicated that top business leaders in Pakistan had the inspiration to build a school in which ethics and sustainability went hand in hand. KSBL will produce ethical leaders with cutting-edge skills who will work in the commercial and social enterprises, ultimately improving the country’s economy. Also present on the occasion were David Johnson from William McDonough + Partners (WM+P) and Paul Wapner from the American University. The design of the KSBL City campus developed by William McDonough + Partners (WM+P), a U.S. architectural firm known for its pioneering work in the sustainable design movement, ensures maximum utilisation and optimisation of the natural resources used throughout the campus building.
