About the SCC

The Sustainability Centres Community (SCC) is an engaged community of more than 170 business sustainability centres from around the world. These centres are housed at universities and are teaching, conducting research, and working with industry to make social and environmental change.

Through the SCC, centre leaders share best practices and support one another through virtual collaboration and in-person events.

More information about the SCC is available on the website of the Network for Business Sustainability, which hosts the SCC. For more than 10 years, NBS has been developing content on best practices for sustainability centre teaching, research, and outreach.

As Tima Bansal, NBS Executive Director, says: “If your centre is not a member of the SCC, please join. It's free, and we can do much more by learning from each other and building community than by working separately.”
