MIT Sloan’s faculty members generate ideas and insight through multi-disciplinary research. Our research generates innovative management practices, business models, and supporting market infrastructures that make effective, sustainable use of natural and human resources and advance human welfare. Through our student, alumni, and partner network, we engage leaders across the field of sustainability to use research and practice to spark new, sustainable management practices.
MIT’s Library system: One of the best in the world, MIT’s library system provides access to historic collections as well as up-to-date data resources and professional research guidance expertise for all MIT scholars. The library system supports research on sustainability directly, with a comprehensive “sustainable business” section on the library website that gives accessible and well-curated access to the best-in-class books, articles, and online data resources for our undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students as well as for faculty and research staff.
Sustainable Societies Research Group (SSRG): One of the key research efforts managed by the Initiative for Sustainable Business and Society is the SSRG. The SSRG holds regular meetings of faculty and other researchers from across the MIT campus to share perspectives on sustainability from multiple disciplines. Some meetings feature one group member presenting their work and receiving feedback, other meetings feature an invited guest speaker from outside MIT, and some meetings offer researchers the chance to plan collaborative research projects on key sustainability topics. The SSRG welcomes new members at any time, from any department affiliation at MIT.
Research Funds: The Sustainability Initiative also manages research funds - gifts to the program intended to incentivize faculty and other researchers to embark on sustainability related research topics. At present, the Initiative manages two funds: The Itaú Fund for Research on Sustainability in Latin America, and the MIT Sloan Fund for Research on Energy Management and Communication, which was funded by an anonymous alum. There are no open calls for proposals at this time.
