Business and Sustainability

  • 21 Day Challenge
    A project to cultivate native bee hives for organic honey was the winning idea of UC's 21 Day Challenge in 2015. 'The Bee Team' developed this solution to improve the wellbeing of the typhoon-hit community of Barangay Tarong, Phillipines.



Today’s businesses recognise that customers are choosing suppliers with environmental and cultural values similar to their own. Sustainability remains an important issue as more and more people are holding businesses accountable with their impact on the environment and climate change.

The link between business and sustainability involves improving processes from manufacture to end user, so that we are minimising waste and impact, and rethinking business strategies to take care of the world we live in. This includes looking after communities, individuals, and the planet.
