The workshop is an initiative of the Sustainability Centres Community (SCC), managed by the Network for Business Sustainability (NBS).  


Since 2012, the SCC has brought together leaders of sustainability / responsibility centres from business schools and universities around the world to discuss shared challenges and opportunities. 


This year's Workshop was co-hosted by the Center for Sustainability Transformation and Responsibility (STaR) at the Vienna University of Economics and Business and the Institute for Business Ethics and Sustainable Strategy (IBES) at the University of Applied Sciences for Management & Communication. 


Previous workshops were held at Cornell (New York City, US), INSEAD (Fontainebleau, France), Harvard (Boston, US), and Ivey (London, Canada). 


If your centre is not a member of the SCC, please join this 170-member community. It's free, and we can do much more by learning from each other and building community than by working separately.  

Registration closes July 1!

*Registration and payment will be administered through ConfTool. In the window which opens next, please choose "Create account and register for conference", provide your personal details, and subsequently pick a payment method to register for the conference.


We organized the event with a strong sense of urgency and shared purpose, in the light of the fact that 2021 marks less than ten years until the deadline to fulfil the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
