Principle 4: Research

Currently, SBL has more than 5 active researchers in the areas of CSR, business sustainability, and green business practices.

In line with this principle, the PRME was involved with the following:

PRME Pitch Challenge 2020

In collaboration with Curtin University, Murdoch University, and University of Western Australia (UWA), ECU participated in The PRME Pitch Challenge 2020. The initiative involved challenging higher degree research students in the business discipline to explain how their research matches or contributes to the SDGs.

The winning submission received funding to cover registration fees at the Australia and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference in Perth in 2021 while the winning student submitted a full paper to the ANZAM Conference for peer-review.

Sustainability-Related Research Publications

The School takes pride in the publication of at least 10 sustainability-related research publications in alignment with SDGs.

In the last two years the School has undertaken 19 externally funded research projects that consider aspects of eight of the SDGs. This is in addition to several research papers that investigate aspects of sustainability and corporate responsibility published over the 2019–2020 period. The School has also engaged with higher degree by research (HDR) students in a ‘pitch challenge’ to encourage more HDR students to consider and align their research with the SDGs.
