The webinar “Managing Sustainable Development in International Business”, featuring the AIB Sustainability SIG and AIB Insights joint Special Issue, was held on 26th May 2022.

We would like to thank our guest speakers: Pervez Ghauri (University of Birmingham, UK), Junghoon Park (City University of New York, USA), Haden Choiniere (University of North Carolina at Greensboro, USA), Sarah Ku (Georgia State University/ Loyola University Chicago, USA), and Philipp Kern (Loughborough University London, UK) for sharing their research with the audience of 92. They presented diverse topics about the role of MNEs in achieving SDGs, pros and cons for managers of multinationals, negative externalities and a need for reform, MNE opportunities to lead global sustainable development through food waste recycling, and activists, practices and social skills for social innovation in multinational companies. We enjoyed active discussion with all the participants and would like to express our gratitude to Professor Ans Kolk who provided many sources for further reading.
