Integrating Sustainability into Business Education

In February 2020, AMBA & BGA partnered with Imperial College Business School to bring sustainability to the forefront of the conversation.

Business School leaders from across the UK and Europe joined Imperial College Business School for an engaging seminar and panel discussion. At this event, sustainability experts from Business Schools within the AMBA & BGA network joined us in conversation for integrating sustainability into business education.

Sustainability is one of the key issues of today’s society, as confirmed by the increasing attention of governments, media, academics and industry. In the context of sustainable development, businesses that are often referred to as part of the problem can be part of the solution. As a consequence of that, policymakers, industry leaders, society and academics with different backgrounds are today dealing with sustainability, trying to understand how this affects the traditional way of doing business and, as well, how traditional businesses are affected by sustainability. Developing organisations with a sense of purpose and building a sustainable competitive advantage are key challenges in today’s agendas of global executives.

This keynote addressed the topic of sustainability from a strategic perspective. Topics covered include the drivers of the sustainability debate, the business case for sustainability, sustainability and competitive advantage, and sustainability in business education.

Attendees were engaged in an engaging debate that covered different perspectives on the topics discussed, including economic, environmental, and social.
