The role of organisations in society is changing.

Growing societal inequalities and the unprecedented scale of human-induced ecological change is resulting in the need for large-scale change to the manner in which organisations operate. AIBE contributes to the critical sustainability research agenda by undertaking cutting edge, relevant research, engaging with industry, policy and leading international scholars.
