Help change the way we do business

In an era where companies are regularly 'named and shamed' for environmental or human rights abuses, companies are recognising that sustainable business practices can help them rise above the competition and stay there.

Today's business leaders need to balance the needs of business, communities and the environment. Corporate social responsibility and sustainability have emerged as global management priorities. An organisation's impact on environmental and social issues is as important as the bottom line. A lack of commitment to these issues can result in increasing public scrutiny, with serious consequences for an organisation's future and its employees.

Emily Hayward

Griffith business graduate

Griffith University alumnus Emily Hayward always knew she loved economics. What she didn’t know was how useful her Sustainable Enterprise major in Business would be in tackling one of the world’s most challenging problems – how to save the Great Barrier Reef. As an economist at the industry leading firm Deloitte Access Economics, Emily credits her time in the Griffith Business School as a major driving force behind her love for environmental economics. “Griffith opened my eyes up to how economics can be used to create meaningful change in a number of different ways” she explains. “This really showed me how economics can provide robust arguments in support of environmental protection, which motivated my internship at an environmental consulting firm and subsequently led to my honours thesis in environmental economics.

Career outcomes

The future of successful business

Graduates who understand the triple bottom line concepts of corporate social responsibility, coupled with financial and environmental sustainability, will be in hot demand. In the wake of the global financial crisis and the general dissatisfaction with current corporate ethics, government and industry bodies perceive this to be the future of any successful business.

Sustainable business graduates can expect to find employment with leading organisations who are taking a leadership role in this emerging area of business. Financial institutions, the building and construction industry, and government departments are just some of the ever expanding areas where consideration of sustainability principles is becoming core to the fabric of the workplace.
