The Centre for Research into Sustainability is a multidisciplinary, international group of researchers and educators at Royal Holloway, University of London, UK. We are actively engaged with the understanding of organisational responses to the multiple facets of sustainability.
We understand sustainability in broad terms as relating to economic, social/ethical and environmental perspectives. We do this through research, teaching and collaboration with external organisations.
Our purpose, ultimately, is to advance scholarship and contribute to positive social change in terms of the contemporary challenges of poverty alleviation, social injustice and climate change.
We have particular strengths in our research in terms of business ethics, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), sustainability accounting and marketing ethics. Besides our extensive global academic partnerships we collaborate and study private sector businesses (both large firms and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), cooperatives, social enterprises, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), supply chains, policy makers, professional associations and the local community.
