Sustainability and Responsibility - Reseach

Cranfield School of Management

Our Research

As a specialist action-research centre at Cranfield School of Management, our research is focused on CR, sustainability and the role of business in society. Our purpose is to enable academic research in these areas, and provide today's manager with the knowledge, vision and scope to adopt a fully sustainable approach to business activities.

            •  We undertake our own research and also collaborate with associates and partners.
            • We also support faculty members of the School of Management in their related research.
            • Our library is free to access here.
            • We also encourage research via our students at MBA/MSc and PhD level, who we consider the next generation of leaders in the field.
