Past Participants & Testimonials


“Every now and then, I come across a springboard that’s powerful enough to launch me in a new direction, and this class was that springboard. I not only walked away with practical tools for implementing initiatives but also a vision for what sustainability can do for businesses and communities going forward. The team from Natural Capital Solutions was incredible. Their knowledge regarding sustainability far exceeded my expectations and their genuine interest in each student’s success (not just in the course, but also in their career) inspired me to raise my own bar even higher.”
– Sarah Verno, Lockheed Martin
