Centre for Research into Sustainability

The Centre for Research into Sustainability (CRIS) is a multidisciplinary, international group of researchers and educators at Royal Holloway, University of London, UK. We are actively engaged with the understanding of social/ethical, economic and environmental sustainability in contemporary society.

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 and consumer ethics. Our goal is to advance scholarship and to contribute to positive social change of contemporary challenges defined within three UN Sustainable Development Goals:

(5) Gender Equality

(12) Responsible Consumption and Production

(16) Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

We hold regular seminar series and external speaker events. Take a look here for more

Our flagship courses are the postgraduate and undergraduate levels through the MSc Sustainability & Management and the BSc Management with Corporate Responsibility and the BSc Management with Corporate Responsibility with a Year in Business.
