The Network for Business Sustainability (NBS) is coming to South Africa, thanks to a memorandum of understanding with the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) at the University of Pretoria and the Graduate School of Business (GSB) at the University of Cape Town. Called NBS:SA, its role is to create a bridge between academia and business
through a collaboration between academics and business leaders focused on addressing business sustainability issues within the African context.

One of NBS:SA's first actions will be the creation of a Leadership Council comprised of local business leaders across various sectors. They will meet annually to identify their sustainability challenges as an input to research. Their first meeting is scheduled for July 15 and 16 at the GIBS campus in Johannesburg.
