BSV hosts the Network for Business Sustainability, a trailblazing organization that bridges the gap between research and practice. For more than a decade, it has facilitated knowledge sharing across an international community of business leaders, scholars and students.

NBS has worked with hundreds of experts to build a unique repository of over 900 resources. These resources are used by over 40,000 individuals worldwide on a monthly basis, providing high-quality content that enables practical action on cutting-edge sustainability topics. NBS’s resources are organized around six key sustainability topics, called “Knowledge Hubs.” The Knowledge Hubs centralize resources, collaboration, and community around issues that are essential to sustainable development.

In the future, NBS will build focus on deepening its relationships with the community it serves, so it can better facilitate collaborative action toward systems change. Knowledge Hubs provide a focus for this kind of collective energy and exchange.

Businesses need access to rigorous, relevant research to support their decisions and actions, and researchers need to understand real-world business challenges to ask relevant questions. NBS aims to shape management practice and research with the resources it produces and the dialogue it facilitates.
