Managing for Sustainability Research
The Managing for Sustainability (M4S) program is widely respected for its quality, distinguished faculty, and its prominent advisory board including sustainability leaders across different industries and for-profit and non-profit sectors. The M4S program was awarded the Business School’s Laube Community Service Award in 2016. The program prides itself on preparing students to be change leaders for sustainability initiatives, regardless of their primary field.
The M4S faculty have published over 35 journal articles and books in the sustainability and corporate governance arena, and have been active in joint research with the sustainability community. Faculty have engaged in research on important current issues including an ongoing joint government/faculty project with the City of Denver on the effect of trade wars on sustainability, research on the impact of early-on internal carbon pricing by US companies on future carbon emissions to be presented at the First international Carbon Pricing Conference, stranded asset risk, sustainability strategies for small and medium-size businesses, building local legitimacy into corporate social responsibility, information technology and sustainability, enterprise system capability and corporate emission reductions, and assisting businesses and non-profits with key problems that they face in an era of greater climate change risks.
