Monash Business and Sustainability Network
The Monash Business and Sustainability Network is an interdisciplinary collaboration that draws upon the extensive expertise in sustainable business and economics found at Monash's campuses, both in Australia and internationally.
The Network's objective is to promote high-quality research and education focusing on the interaction between sustainability and good business practices.
We believe that one of the biggest challenges of our times is to develop businesses and economies that are resilient and adaptable to profound environmental change. By creating links between researchers at all of Monash's campuses, we aim to marshal the considerable resources available across the University both more effectively and in such a way that the major issues facing our world today can be tackled from a truly more global, multidisciplinary perspective.
The Network promotes its work through regular international symposia and research events.
Global research connections
We connect with researchers from around the world at Monash University's Prato Centre.
