The Institute for Environmental Entrepreneurship was founded in 1999. IEE advances environmental and social sustainability for our planet, all people and our collective prosperity, now and into the future.
Early in its existence, IEE created the Green MBA program, the first in the nation to teach business practices devoted to achieving environmental and social sustainability while maintaining a solid financial bottom line.
The Green MBA program grew in temporary quarters for several years before moving to a permanent location at Dominican University in San Rafael, CA in 2007, which has allowed IEE to broaden its focus. This focus is now centered on Research and Development for the triple bottom line.
The Research conducted and aggregated by the Institute, the practical applications organized as Development, and the Consulting we do, are all informed by our mission, and are intended to contribute to a public discussion and critique of sustainability.
