Doing Well By Doing Good

The Center for Sustainable Business (CSB) at the University of Pittsburgh aims to promote the adoption of more sustainable business practices.  We accomplish this by leveraging the unique expertise and capabilities of an active research and teaching community together with the applied knowledge and industry experience of leading global companies. Through innovative research, specialized education and training, and critical thought leadership, the CSB helps companies learn how to leverage their investments in sustainability across all functions of the organization to generate better business and societal outcomes.
