IMPACT magazine issue 10

Issue 10 of the Business School's award-winning magazine, IMPACT, is out now. Themed around ‘sustainability and society’, the issue looks at our research on sustainability and addresses what this means for business in the widest sense – not just climate change – but our global responsibility to manage the planet’s resources.

The magazine also looks at other issues facing society and ways we, as individuals as well as organisations, can make an impact on the world we share.
