Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Network

The Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Network (CRSN) aims to provide a new and open platform that brings together Scotland’s sustainability professionals to meet, network, discuss best practice, consider challenges and debate issues of mutual interest.

The Network is hosted by the University of Edinburgh Business School Sustainable Business Initiative and was developed in response to Scotland’s sustainability sector’s professionals’ wish to have a collaborative platform to tackle topical issues and share current concerns.

The Network is open to individuals from all companies (including SMEs) who are committed to responsible and sustainable business practices and eager to meet like-minded professionals. We host private, invitation-only events as well as public events in collaboration with our members across various locations in Scotland.

Each event will be focused on a topic central to the sustainability agenda and we will welcome leading academic and industry speakers to share their wise thoughts and insights.

To get the most out of The Network you are also welcome to request to join our closed LinkedIn Group for discussion and debate.

Kenneth, SBI Director, gives an overview of the CRSN including its motivations and ambitions »

Please note: we aim to keep an open and honest atmosphere at all Network events. With this in mind, it is strictly not a platform for the ‘sale’ of consultancy services as this detracts from the main aim of The Network. For some events, we will adopt a ‘closed door’ policy and target invites to specific sustainability professionals.
