Sustainable business research institute
The Leeds Business School Sustainable Business Research Institute (SuBRI) mission is to engage in applied research that supports future sustainable business performance, leadership and responsibility.
The Institute harnesses the skills and capabilities of Leeds Beckett University academics in business and related disciplines to understand, explain and challenge the future issues facing all commercial organisations in order to develop resilient and agile organisations with sustainable futures.
SuBRI’s research and enterprise clusters reflect the multidisciplinary contributions required to respond to core business issues of leadership, responsibility and accountability as well as performance.
SuBRI operates as a hub for promoting, generating and inspiring innovative research and scholarly activity which make a societal difference. The school’s vision is to maximise the impact on regional agendas and priority sectors with the aim of being one of the most aligned management schools with contemporary business practice. Through the Institute, Leeds Business School academics are responding to the UK Industrial Strategy and use it as a vehicle to deliver regional innovation strategy plans.
SuBRI's aim is to support future sustainable business performance, leadership and responsibility.
Our mission is to address the global challenges facing business growth, performance and sustainability but to do so in a spirit of responsibility.
Led by Dr Arrigoni, this theme includes The Centre for Governance, Leadership and Global Responsibility and encompasses areas of research in the theory and practice of integrated pedagogy and professional development, creating significant links across the public-private divide.
Led by Professor Tench with research leads Dr Diers-Lawson and Dr Topic, this is a long-standing area of research with international impact. The theme covers research into organisational use of strategic communication for public and private sector organisations as well as exploring the role and impact of communication on societal issues such as health, sustainability and responsibility.
