Business School

Research & Impact


The pace of digital technology’s evolution is disrupting the foundations of businesses and entire industries with a dramatic impact on economic, social, and environmental sustainability. In this theme, we explore and analyse digital enablement and sustainability on three analytical levels: industry, business organizations, and employees.
The aim of this theme is to address the problem of waste in the construction industry – not in the sense that we use recycled materials to build buildings, but by investigating the following logic towards lean construction to achieve zero waste.
Digitally enabled solutions are moving cities towards smart solutions that position businesses and communities at the centre of sustainable solutions to the challenges of growing cities worldwide. Against the backdrop, in this theme, we seek to explore and contribute to the multifaceted aspects of sustainable city development.
This project aims to design and develop a Knowledge Information System for business schools that maps the schools’ current education and research work against the 17 SDGs and 169 targets.
