Rethinking business in a collectively conscious and responsive society

The Centre for Business and Society (CBS) is a platform that brings efforts and conversations at the intersection of business and society onto a wider stage of influence. It is a medium for all, to form a network that works towards research communications, policy discussions, debates, student engagement and edutainment events to engender a positive impact on society.


Change Starts With Inspiration

CBS’ blueprint draws largely from the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Ethics, collective awareness and social responsibility are the underlying themes for all the centre’s activities. The centre’s thematic areas include cross-cutting themes of education, gender, sustainability, diversity, inclusiveness, health, governance, public policy, micro/social entrepreneurship and capacity building and equal access for all.
