The Green Business Initiative Student Association (GBISA) is one of the first student organizations of its kind. Comprised of graduate students from the University of Oregon School of Law and the Lundquist College of Business, GBISA members are interested in and dedicated to the intersection of law, business, and the environment. GBISAâ€™s mission is to promote awareness of sustainable business practices and the legal framework and policies that support green business.
GBISAâ€™s leading activity each year is to organize its annual Green Business Symposium at the White Stag Block in Portland, Oregon. The Symposium aims to be the premier student-organized green business conference in the Pacific Northwest. The Symposium brings together hundreds of regional and national business leaders, policymakers, legal practitioners, academics, and students to engage in discussions on how we as a society can achieve a more sustainable economy and living environment.
