Real. Good. Business.
The Business Sustainability Collaborative is an academic initiative at NC State that brings together students, leading faculty and the business community to redefine how business success is measured.
Our world-class teaching and research reveal how social, environmental and financial performance, taken together, offer deeper insight into the good that businesses do. And we connect students and faculty with real-world companies to put sustainable practices into action.
“Business sustainability” isn’t a buzzword; it’s a long-term strategy to drive innovation and competitive advantage, grounded in fairness and accountability. Sustainable businesses are more profitable and less exposed to risk — and they create value not just for their shareholders, but for their communities.
