Working with CUBS

UCC Futures - SustainabLE business

Shaping Leaders for a Sustainable Future is at the heart of the strategic vision of Cork University Business School. Our vision emphasizes the importance of responsible business and management in leading organisations that will maximise the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit. Through this era of unprecedented change, we increasingly expect our business and public leaders to shape a more equitable and sustainable world. The pursuit of profitability and productivity must be better balanced with the health and wellness of the individual, and the wider environmental and social impact of business decisions.
