Sustainability has become mainstream in both management practice and management research. Businesses are incorporating it into their overall strategy, universities are integrating it across their curricula and scholars are recognising it as a bona fide field of research inquiry. With environmental and social problems worsening, the world should be on the road to a sustainable future. But it is not.
Join Andy Hoffman as he discusses the progression of social change around environmental issues from 1970 to the present day. He will present how management systems are changing in the current epoch of the Anthropocene, in which human activities have a significant impact on the Earth’s systems. Management systems changes include: systems thinking, materials use and supply chains, domains of corporate activity, organisations, and the economic models and metrics that are used to measure them.
This event is run jointly between Cambridge Judge Business School and Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL).
