Period Covered: Nov 2017 to Nov 2019
UTS Business School develops student awareness and capabilities around broader questions such as diversity and sustainability. Our knowledge makers support the Principles by building an evidence base to enable responsible decision making by business to sustain people and planet not just profit. Recent work in sustainable finance, corporate social responsibility, refugee entrepreneurship and “compassionate” management are reported. The Principles are embedded in our work.
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.
