There is a huge and evolving marketplace in sustainable living. Lots of centers and journals and conferences, but here's two to check out: The Center for Sustainable Global Enterprise at Cornell is focused on working with the commercial sector to build sustainability into operations and production. Their focus is on 'bottom of the pyramid' market -- developing useful products for the 4 billion low-income humans. BALLE is the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies. Their efforts are directed at helping businesses build sustainability into their mission.
