Sustainability and Responsibility Research Group

Creating sustainable and responsible business though innovate action-research and consulting

What we do - research and consultancy

The Sustainability and Responsibility Research Group was created to serve as a hub where first class academic research is conducted and practical implications are disseminated. In particular, we are here to help the business sector understand the importance of CSR and sustainability initiatives and strategies, and how these can be employed to enhance their reputation, profitability, and competitiveness.

About us?

We are a group of multidisciplinary Massey Business School scholars with leading and emerging researchers in responsible capitalism, sustainability disciplines, corporate responsibility, ethical behaviour and other social issues in management. We work closely with academics, business, and policymakers including a team of global collaborators in academia and business as well as supervising postgraduate researchers.

Our goals

To develop a nationally and internationally recognised centre of excellence in corporate social responsibility and sustainability research by promoting inter-disciplinary exchange and cooperation.

  • To facilitate the training of postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and visiting graduate students;
  • To stimulate interactions and promote collaborations between researchers, practitioners and policy makers;
  • To provide an environment for collaborative research with other universities, central government agencies, local governments, international organisations and research institutes.
