A Research Agenda for Business and Sustainability
This workshop has been organised by the Sustainable Growth, Business, Work and Economic Productivity (SBE) Pathway and is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities.
In this seminar we will discuss current research in the field of sustainability and business. Based on the recently published book ‘A Research Agenda for Sustainability and Business’, we will examine a range of multidisciplinary perspectives on the current state and future direction of research in this area.
Students will gain a more in-depth knowledge into sustainability challenges facing businesses today, from socially responsible consumption behaviours and organisational resilience, to climate change and sustainability transitions in extractive industries. Students will explore the breadth and depth of analyses and perspectives that are necessary to further the agenda for research on sustainability and business.
