Do you think is good to talk about sustainable business for a IB interview?

I am currently a freshman (class of 2025) in a semi-target and wanna apply for IBD junior summer internships at BB and EB. I have some insights into sustainable business but I'm not sure whether it's good to tell the interviewer that my passion for sustainable business is one of the main reasons I go IBD

Depends on the group, but either way it likely won't hurt you. If you want to do energy, p&u, or infra, then It is a great interest to have and a good motive for why you want to go into those groups.

Common corporate ethics is having some commitment to sustainable business and general progressiveness. I bet there's an initiative on that company's website, and it wouldn't hurt to mention that in a "why that company" answer

Very helpful. Definitely gonna consider including "why company" if mention anything about sustainable business.

A sustainable business is very cool, I think you should say. I myself am now working with a sustainable business. I am helped by one company that gives me a lot of experience and practice, go here. I think that at this pace I will be able to develop this business very quickly and become a real expert in this field. I wish you good luck too
