UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Amulya Gurtu (Supply Chain Management, Austin E. Cofrin School of Business) and Prof. Sampath Kumar (Marketing Management, Austin E. Cofrin School of Business) co-authored a paper, “Sustainability from Designers to Consumers” in the Journal of Business and Economic Perspectives, XLVII(1), pp 68-90. This paper presents a viewpoint that functions, other than supply chain management, have a bigger role in environmental sustainability. Marketing is used to lure consumers into replacing products as often as possible. Replacing products, which are in good working condition, results in an increase in carbon emissions. It is a waste of precious natural resources. This raises the question whether customers are aware of the environmental impact of their buying behavior and do they consider sustainability when making purchase decisions. Study results suggest that even though students do care about the environment, sustainability in buying decisions has a low priority.
Classes at UW-Green Bay looked a bit different this year with students and faculty respecting the masking and social-distance requirements indoors. Many of the faculty also took to teaching outdoors last week, taking advantage of the warm temperatures and beautiful campus environment. Enjoy the gallery.

UW-Green Bay Environmental Science student Jacob Derenne is part of a project team working on a study to link properties of soil health (a suite of biological, chemical and physical properties) to the quality of water that runs off the field during rain events. Last week (August 31-Sept. 1, 2020) the team was measuring the infiltration capacity of the soil and collected samples to determine the water holding capacity, the resistance of the soil clumps (aggregates) to destruction by rainfall and the degree of soil compaction, according to Prof. Kevin Fermanich.
The teams in Wisconsin are working on farms near Wrightstown and Greenleaf.
