Tackling sustainability across the globe

One of the biggest challenges of our times is to develop businesses and economies that are resilient and adaptable to profound environmental change.

As the Australia/ Pacific regional hub of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Monash University is committed to mobilising global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical solutions for sustainable development.

The Monash Business and Sustainability Network aims to create links between researchers across the world in order to tackle the major issues facing the world today from a truly global and multidisciplinary perspective.

Monash Business and Sustainability Workshop 2017

On 26-27 June 2017, leading academics across a range of disciplines in business and economics were brought together at the Monash Prato campus for the fifth annual Sustainability Workshop, hosted by Monash Business School.

The Network hosts an annual conference on sustainable development at Monash University’s campus in Prato, Italy to share research insights, ideas and to develop new project collaborations.

Monash Business School’s Deputy Dean, Research and Chair of the Monash Business and Sustainability Network, Professor Gary Magee, said the conference provided an important opportunity for the School’s globally-focused researchers to connect with international researchers and industry.

“It brings together scholars from across a range of disciplines in business and economics to cover major current issues and challenges in sustainable development and organisational sustainability,” he said.

“Over the past five years we’ve been holding this workshop, it’s had some very tangible outcomes. There have been the traditional outcomes in terms of publications, but also a series of research grants developed with industry, particularly in the area of sustainable procurement. And it has created international networks and opportunities for our researchers.”
