Sustainable Development

Economic development required to support current and future generations must respect the limits of the earth’s natural environment and promote equity, social justice and well-being for all. Adopting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as unifying framework, our research studies the design and use of information systems to improve individual, organizational and societal sustainability outcomes. Research in this stream is enabled through support from the Fonds de recherche du Québec and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
