Imperial College Business School academics joined experts from universities across Europe to discuss the role of sustainability in business education.
Imperial College Business School's Maurizio Zollo, Professor of Strategy & Sustainability, contributed to the panel discussion, and Paolo Taticchi, Principal Teaching Fellow in management and sustainability, was the academic host and organiser of the event.
The event was held in partnership with the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and Business Graduates Association (BGA).
Paolo said: “Everything starts with education. We need business schools to integrate sustainable thinking and teaching at all levels in the curricula, so as to train a new generation of decision makers aware of societal problems and able to make sustainable decisions in the long term."
The group also explored how companies, which have traditionally struggled to incorporate sustainability into corporate strategy, can transform their approach to business, as well as the main drivers of the sustainability debate and the business case for sustainability.
Maurizio and Paolo were interviewed after the event to discuss the future of sustainability in business. Watch the interviews below.
