Founder and President of Executive Education for the Environment, Trudy Heller shows business leaders how to integrate environmental stewardship into their business models, operations, and competitive strategies. She has worked intensively with executives and staff at Campbell Soup, GE, Lockheed Martin, Merck, REI, and many other firms, and she has spoken and conducted training programs throughout the world – from Canada, the United States and Mexico to the United Kingdom, Ireland and Italy to Russia, Thailand and India.
Heller authored chapters in the influential collections Research in Corporate Sustainability: The Evolving Theory and Practice of Organizations in the Natural Environment and Teaching Business Sustainability: From Theory to Practice. Her articles on the competitive edge to be gained from green practices have appeared in Environmental Protection, Foreign Policy, Ulster Business, the Encyclopedia of Sustainability, E-Commerce Times, and Western Mail (Wales), as well as in Organization Science, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, and IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management.
An adjunct professor at both the University of Pennsylvania and Rutgers University, Heller has also been on the business faculty at the Wharton School and at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. She regularly presents her findings at academic conferences in the U.S. and abroad.
Heller speaks on new business models that incentivize companies to reduce the materials and energy used in production as well as on the ways information technologies are enabling green solutions. She explains the role of emerging economies in creating so-called “leapfrog” innovations – how they are different and why they are important. And she engages skeptics, who often believe that business and environmental interests conflict, by describing the many opportunities for business to prosper by providing green solutions.
