Associate Professor Wendy Stubbs

I am an Associate Professor in the Centre for Geography & Environmental Science in the School of Social Sciences. My previous career as a  corporate executive in the IT and Telecommunications sectors led me to question ‘business-as-usual’ and seek to understand how business could more effectively address its environmental, social and economic responsibilities. My PhD (2006) in corporate sustainability developed a ‘sustainability business model’ that integrates sustainability into the core business model and my research continues to explore business models that are grounded in the principles of sustainability (environmental, social and economic) and sustainable business practices. My research interests include sustainable business models, BCorps (for-profit, for-purpose companies), industrial ecosystems/symbiosis (where waste streams are recycled as inputs to other processes and organisations in the industrial ecosystem), sustainability reporting, integrated reporting and education for sustainability. I am the Director of the Master of Environmental Management & Sustainability (MEMS) and teach sustainability in the MEMS and MBA programs. I have an MBA from the Wharton Business School (USA), and a Bachelor of Applied Science from UTS (Australia).
