UTS Business School understands sustainability as referring to the long term, to the concept that decisions made now should not impair the quality of life for future generations. UTS Business School aims to contextualise this understanding of sustainability so that students develop the knowledge and critical thinking skills to apply to a future workplace that is increasingly shaped by resource constraints and a need for innovation and flexibility.
Sharing Information on Progress (2011)
Our commitment to the UN PRME’s 6 principles extends through cross disciplinary teaching with other faculties such as IT, Engineering and Design and Building. The principles are embedded within our established centres, operations, teaching and learning, research and community engagement. We have declared our commitment to local, national and global sustainability with the Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN), to champion the principles of access, equity and sustainability.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
UTS Business School has developed a more integrative approach to its business education by establishing several working parties with the purpose of embedding key themes of sustainability, ethics and creativity into new undergraduate and postgraduate subjects. The working parties represented all of the different disciplinary groups in the Business School ( marketing, management, economics, finance and accounting) and they came together to think of ways to map sustainability across a business degree.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
UTS Business School has an active research culture, with particular strengths represented in our research centres and in the discipline groups of Accounting, Marketing, Management, Economics and Finance. At the school, senior academic staff are supervising doctoral students undertaking research in climate change and investment markets; energy efficiency and organisational change ; energy efficiency and institutional change; sustainability narratives and change; sustainability in business in China; and CSR in the creative industries. Professor Suzanne Benn, Professor of Sustainable Enterprise, provides leadership within UTS Business School and across UTS generally, working with other discipline groups and external stakeholders to promote sustainability.
