The multidisciplinary Tilburg Sustainability Center (TSC) was founded in 2009 at Tilburg University. It hosts researchers from the Schools of Economics and Management, Law, Social and Behavorial Sciences, TiasNimbas Business School and the regional sustainable development institute Telos.
Our main research areas are: Climate Action & Resource Efficiency, Corporate Social Responsibility, the Economics of Biodiversity, Social Innovation and Sustainability & Governance.

Collaborative research between economists, law scientists, sociologists and related disciplines on fundamental and applied research, makes TSC excellently placed to study today's societal sustainability challenges.

TSC aims to contribute to the national and international debate about sustainability and sustainable growth among researchers, executives, politicians, students and civil society. To gain insights, TSC can build on the excellent disciplinary expertise of our own researchers, pushes out the frontiers of multidisciplinary research and maintains partnerships with other (inter)national institutions, the business community and (various layers of) governments. In sharing our research outcomes and solutions, TSC hopes to provide a benefit to society.
Tilburg Sustainability Center's major activities are the participation in (inter)national research programs and a broad set of research projects. Our researchers also teach (under)graduates and postgraduates. To publicize research results and promote both academic and public debate, TSC organizes and participates in both internal and external seminars, conferences, public lectures and other outreach events. Our researchers regularly connect to the public via articles and interviews in different media. Some contributions can be found in this outreach dossier.
The researchers within TSC operate on the interface of economics, ethics and law. To get to know us, have a look at our Research Team.
