UTSpeaks: Sustaining Business

Will Vision and Leadership be the Keys that Safeguard Corporations in an Uncertain Future?


Will Vision and Leadership be the Keys that Safeguard Corporations in an Uncertain Future?

Australia’s widely diverse corporations make a ‘one-size-fits-all’ strategy for adopting sustainable practices impossible. Yet the pressure to transform how business does business has never been greater.

In this special UTSpeaks event, senior researchers in business sustainability will introduce and lead a discussion with some of Australia’s major corporations in how they are working towards being sustainable enterprises.

The strategic approach of each in transforming their business operations also features in a new book - Cases in Corporate Sustainability and Change. We invite you to join us in celebrating the launch of this book and to participate in the enlightening forum to follow.
