The Centre for Building Sustainable Value Ivey Sustainability Research Conference 2019 will take place on December 5th 1:00 PM - December 6th 5:00 PM at the Ivey Business School, London, Ontario. The purpose of the Ivey Sustainability Conference is to create an inclusive community of scholars who are eager to push the frontiers of knowledge towards sustainable development. Researchers from all disciplines and career stages are welcome to attend and participate in the conference. At a time when intellectual discourse seems to be divisive, we hope that, through this conference, we can build safe, stimulating arenas for the scientific community to engage and grow intellectually, in order to assure the prosperity for all.

Centre for Building Sustainable Value


The Centre provides practitioners and students with the knowledge, tools, and capabilities to manage both private and public interests through organizational actions.

Sustainable Finance


The Centre has focused on three critical levers that we believe will catalyze sustainable development: finance, supply chains, and innovation.

Capital markets are an important catalyst for businesses to incorporate progressive environmental, social and governance criteria in decision-making. We investigate new ways to invest and manage capital, inclusive measures of ROI, and the implications of short- and long-term time horizons. This work is led by Diane-Laure Arjaliès.

Sustainable Supply Chains


The Centre has focused on three critical levers that we believe will catalyze sustainable development: finance, supply chains, and innovation.

The ways in which products are designed, manufactured, transported, consumed, re-used and recycled have a profound impact on our society and the natural environment. Over the years, supply chains have become complex, adaptive networks that generate serious negative externalities. We investigate how businesses, regulators and non-governmental organizations can jointly develop supply chains that function capably within social and natural thresholds. Particularly, our focus remains on discovering what innovative processes and structures enable transparency, accountability and circularity within ever changing supply chain networks. This work is led by Jury Gualandris.

Sustainable Innovation


The Centre has focused on three critical levers that we believe will catalyze sustainable development: finance, supply chains, and innovation.

Innovation is the heart of effective organizations across industries and sectors. We investigate how organizations unlock new ways of creating financial and societal value through human-centred processes, design-thinking, and collaboration. This work is led by Tima Bansal.

Network for Business Sustainability


The Network for Business Sustainability (NBS), founded within the Centre for Building Sustainable Value, is a growing network of more than 7,000 researchers and managers committed to advancing sustainable business. Businesses need access to rigorous, relevant research to support their decisions and actions, and researchers need to understand real-world business challenges to ask relevant questions. NBS aims to shape management practice and research with the resources it produces and the dialogue it facilitates.
