Creating an alliance of students, researchers, and practitioners who are committed to a sustainable future

Net Impact Guelph is a graduate chapter of an international organization that brings together staff, practitioners, faculty, and graduate students who are interested in using business as a force for good. The Guelph chapter is committed to developing partnerships and creating an alliance of people who are passionate about sustainability.

The United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals are at the heart of Net Impact Guelph. In an effort to generate productive conversations around sustainability, Net Impact Guelph organizes events throughout the year that bring people together to talk about sustainable practices and integrate business with sustainable solutions.

In 2019, Net Impact Guelph hosted Beyond Business as Usual, an event that invited researchers from across campus to present their research and develop cross-discipline partnerships.

"The event was a way to take business and integrate it with sustainable research and solutions. We had researchers in the backgrounds of sociology, environmental science, engineering, management, and computer science. There was something enriching for everyone who showed up."
