Dear Speakers, Delegates, Sponsors, and Collaborators.
In this unprecedented time and responding to the directives of limiting social gatherings, ICBSI has decided to be held via virtual mode.

Welcome to the 2nd International Conference on Business Sustainability and Innovation 2020 (ICBSI2020)


The drive toward business sustainability for the generations of today and tomorrow is important and can be achieved in large part through innovation. Rising consumption of energy and resources associated with the ever-growing global population, particularly in developing countries, have reinforced the dangers of climate change, and have contributed to the soaring cost of oil dependency, water shortages, loss of biodiversity, and social destabilisation. In line with this, the 2nd International Conference on Business Sustainability and Innovation (ICBSI, 2020) provides a much-needed platform for contemporary management researchers and practitioners to address these realities.

The mission of the conference is to integrate sustainability and innovation and to draw on empirical and professional insights for more impactful solutions. The event offers a unique opportunity for business leaders, researchers, academics, and practitioners worldwide to collaborate, exchange ideas, and share their views and concerns on the pressing issues of sustainability and innovation. As business becomes increasingly globalised in nature, organisations are compelled to operate based on a business model that integrates economic, environmental, and social dimensions.  

Due to crossing borders traveling challenges and current Covid-19 pandemic, we have considered an alternative means to organize this year’s ICBSI and reached our decision that the fully-virtual format will be the best option.

The Graduate School of Business, Universiti Sains Malaysia would like to invite you to participate in the 2020 International Conference on Business Sustainability and Innovation, which will be held VIRTUALLY from 7 - 8 October 2020. The overarching theme of the conference is Nurturing Business Sustainability and Innovation. We invite papers on any topic related to business sustainability, business innovation and academic approaches to business sustainability.
