About Us

The Centre for Building Sustainable Value's research, teaching and outreach focus on three pillars. We believe these pillars are key levers for change that will allow business to contribute meaningfully to resilient economies and societies.

Sustainable Finance

Capital markets are an important catalyst for businesses to incorporate progressive environmental, social and governance criteria in decision-making. We investigate new ways to invest and manage capital, inclusive measures of ROI, and the implications of short- and long-term time horizons. This work is led by Dr. Diane-Laure Arjaliès.


Sustainable Products

The ways in which products are created, marketed, and transported have a profound impact on environmental and social outcomes. We investigate how businesses transform their supply chains in light of new opportunities and pressures, and how consumers respond to products with sustainability attributes. This work is led by Dr. Jury Gualandris. 


Sustainable Innovation

Innovation is the heart of effective organizations across industries and sectors. We investigate how organizations unlock new ways of creating financial and societal value through human-centred processes, design-thinking, and collaboration. This work is led by Dr. Tima Bansal.
