Erb Faculty Director Joe Árvai and I took Erb on the road in November—to India!

India is one of the institute’s priority emerging markets for sustainability impact, and we’ve been working with the India Centre for Responsible Business (CRB) to develop a partnership for research, teaching and business-engagement opportunities. Erb sponsored CRB’s annual “India and Sustainability Standards” conference this year, and Joe and I were asked to speak at the November 14-16 event in Delhi.

Erb Institute | Business for Sustainability Faculty, Tom Lyon asks, "Do Millenials Have a Sense of 'Meh' When It Comes to the U.S. Auto Industry?"

Interestingly, “changing emotional connections to and meanings around driving and ownership, and utility perceptions around vehicles” may be indicative of a general lack of interest by this generation, or more simply, ‘meh’.
