Warwick ESD Spotlight

Warwick Business School

Working to support the integration of sustainability into every business, starting with our own School

'Sustainability isn’t a project, a programme or a function. It’s a far-reaching philosophy that affects everything we do. So becoming a sustainable organisation isn’t so much destination as a continuous journey. In WBS we have a long way to go, just as do the businesses we work with. But we’re committed to the journey, and I’m proud to be a small part of that.'

- Professor Hugh Wilson, co-chair, WBS Working Group on Social & Environmental Sustainability
