Why study Social Impact and Sustainability?

The role of business in society is expanding. Beyond its financial value, business can create social and environmental value. For example, social enterprises create positive social impact while also remaining financially sustainable. However, business activities are also increasingly impacting the environment, driving adverse global and local environmental changes. The creation of sustainable strategies is concerned with carbon emissions trading and transitions to renewable energy systems.

UQ Business School's research in these areas, as well as its widespread industry involvement, has influenced managers to develop leadership and goals for future social impact and sustainability practice.
