Abstract

What dimensions of sustainability should organisations focus on to be consistent with social wellbeing? How can organisations measure the impact on social wellbeing for the communities they serve? How might that affect our behaviour and outcomes to the environment and communities? Prof Rigobon aims to change how we assess sustainability and promote greater efforts towards enhancing social wellbeing.
