A sustainable organisation must balance its economic needs with social and environmental priorities. The Balanced Enterprise Research Network seeks to generate new insights into the ways in which businesses can better balance economic, social and environmental concerns and create shared value for a broad range of stakeholders (including shareholders, employees, consumers, communities and society). Our network explores how business, government, and not-for-profit enterprises strategically create and manage this balance in their day-to-day operations. As one of the research priority areas of the University of Sydney Business School, we aim to foster the creation of innovative and influential research which informs the ways in which organizations can anticipate and respond to the key challenges of the coming decades including environmental degradation, climate change, poverty, social inclusion, and financial stability.
