OPEN Faculty

Across our membership we have many extraordinary individuals – academics, practitioners and consultants with established international reputations as experts in sustainability and business.

There is a wealth of expertise across mainstream and niche academic disciplines (e.g. integrated accounting, biomimicry for business, circular economics, sustainable finance), business sectors (e.g. agriculture, construction, healthcare) and technical subjects (e.g. engineering, technology, climate science).

Meanwhile we recognise that many business schools have made a leadership-level commitment to embracing sustainability but are frustrated by the gap between their ambition and their performance. This might be a case of needing help to develop strategy, address accreditation bodies (e.g. AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA) newly-adopted sustainability criteria, design new curricula, support faculty development or simply teach specialist elective modules.

OPEN Faculty is a new service we are piloting in 2017 to connect our experts – OPEN Fellows and Associates – with organisations that have gaps in capability that need plugging. OPEN-Faculty-graphic
