Our focus in CBES research is working on the following themes:

1) Environmental sustainability

2) Societal sustainability/social impact

3) Governance and financial sustainability impact

4) Micro-sustainability impact, capturing practices affecting the well-being of people and quality work

5) Sustainability ethics

There are eight sub-areas of research that the Centre for Business Ethics and Sustainability focuses on. These are:

  • Leading for human flourishing and ethics at work
  • Ethical change in business governance, structures and reputation: inclusive and ethical board, governance and management accountability, reporting systems and structures, inclusive organisation, diversity and inclusion
  • Responsible capitalism and triple bottom line (people, planet, profit) driven practices and management: learning from economic history and philosophy
  • Professional ethics and accountability in finance and socially responsible investment
  • Sustainable and resilient cities and communities
  • Ethics and sustainability in business school teaching: developing ethical and responsible business graduates
  • Responsible and sustainability oriented institutions within and across borders
