A strategic research centre

The Griffith Centre for Sustainable Enterprise is a strategic research centre, which oversees the development of research, teaching and engagement activities within Griffith Business School. We also assists with implementing the sustainability strategy and operations of Griffith Business School.

Previously, the Griffith Centre for Sustainable Enterprise was initially called the Asia Pacific Centre for Sustainable Enterprise. The new centre continues this work but it is now also charged with implementing the sustainability operations of Griffith Business School. The Centre has four main areas of interest in which it progresses sustainability. These include research, learning and teaching, community engagement, and operational sustainability.

Research

The Centre’s research spans the broad concepts of sustainability, ethics and corporate responsibility. The central theme of our research is promoting a transition to a sustainable economy.

The Centre actively seeks to engage with a diverse range of researchers, institutions and professionals to deliver innovative and valuable research.

Teaching

The Centre provides teaching support for the sustainable business courses and program in Griffith business School.

It also provides support and strategic advice to GBS curriculum development as well as hosting staff development workshops.

Engagement

A key role of the Centre is to be a lively focal point for discussion and debate around sustainability and how business can be a catalyst for more regenerative sustainability. As part of this commitment, the Centre runs and supports numerous events including conferences, seminars, and workshops that promote and discuss a wide range of sustainability issues.

Operations

The Centre is charged with the responsibility for progressing the sustainability objectives of Griffith Business School. It hosts the School's sustainability committee which is part of the Griffith University Sustainability committee. The Committee provides guidance in identifying areas for improvement in operations, delivering training and support to staff, and implementing projects that support the School’s sustainability agenda as well as contributing to Griffith University’s sustainability mission and activities.
