2020 NBS

Sustainability Centres Community Workshop

Vienna, Austria
24 - 26 June 2020

The biennial workshop is an initiative of the Sustainability Centres Community (SCC), managed by the Network for Business Sustainability (NBS).  


Since 2012, the SCC has brought together leaders of sustainability / responsibility centres from business schools and universities around the world to discuss shared challenges and opportunities.  

The 2020 workshop has two objectives:



Build collective


All activities will emphasize peer learning and transformative change.


WU Vienna

The workshop is co-hosted by the Center for Sustainability Transformation and Responsibility (STaR) at the Vienna University of Economics and Business and the Center for Corporate Governance & Business Ethics (CCGBE) at the University of Applied Sciences for Management & Communication. 


Previous workshops were held at Cornell (New York City, US), INSEAD (Fontainebleau, France), Harvard (Boston, US), and Ivey (London, Canada). 


If your centre is not a member of the SCC, please join this 150-member community. It's free, and we can do much more by learning from each other and building community than by working separately.
