I work with restaurants, hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, property managers, universities and other businesses helping them get a little greener by using state of the art water fixtures that save water, energy and money. It's one small way to go green and save money at the same time.
I am currently involved most heavily in Environmental Regulatory Permitting and CEQA Analysis, but would like to get more involved in sustainability projects or LEED/green building projects. I have experience working on policy analysis and decision-making on a regional-level in Clark County, NV with decision support systems and system dynamics.
I love my career in real estate over the last 13 years. I have worked in condo development, property management, asset management, marketing, legal, entitlements etc... I am currently pursuing my LEED certification and just finished some courses in sustainability at UCLA. I am currently the Managing Director for New Standard Equities. We purchase and manage apartment buildings from Seattle to San Diego. I want to be able to renovate our apartments in an eco-friendly method and therefore am always looking for new ideas regarding this.

EcoTuesday and Rick Bunch, Managing Director of The Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise, a partnership between the Ross School of Business and the School of Natural Resources and Environment at The University of Michigan. The Institute’s large MBA/MS program prepares students to lead sustainable enterprises by pairing management training with environmental science and policy knowledge.
Rick’s EcoTuesday talk will lay out the education and research agenda for the next generation of sustainable business leadership, describing programs and strategies of the Erb Institute and how the Institute can work with business, non-profits and governments to advance sustainable enterprise. He will address the proposition that Michigan should strengthen its economy through a focus on green manufacturing, while also exploring what additional competitive advantages the state might realize from its long history of addressing social sustainability issues in business.
Rick has 15 years of global experience leading development of business education and research programs around issues of sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Previously with the Business and Society Program at The Aspen Institute, he launched a new program for education and research on business-and-society topics in Chinese business schools.
Rick's diverse background has included an assignment with the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, near Seattle, Washington. Founded in 2002, BGI's mission is to be the leading values-driven business and management school that prepares individuals to transform the world of work and to help create sustainable, socially just economies and healthy environments.
From 1996 to 2003, Bunch served as director of business education at the World Resources Institute (WRI). He produced training conferences for business school faculty and program staff in North and Latin America and China. He also oversaw the development and publication of business-school curriculum, and developed and co-authored the Beyond Grey Pinstripes MBA program rankings.
Bunch holds an MBA and environmental management certificate from the University of Washington and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Yale University.

I'm currently a product manager for WiserEarth.org, a social networking site to bring together people and organizations involved in sustainability. Interested in meeting people involved in this sector, and getting a good sense what the needs are, and how technology can be used to bridge that gap. Applying for a few MBA programs right now, so if you are also doing the same, let's talk!
