The Henry J. and Edna D. Leir Research Institute for Business, Technology, and Society will focus on one of the most critical global challenges facing business and society today: the impacts of climate change and other disruptive societal and operational events on corporate sustainability and business continuity. The overarching goal of the Leir Research Institute is to help business and industry to move beyond just being competitive in the marketplace to creating real shareholder and social value by becoming eco-efficient, resilient and sustainable. This research builds upon and leverages decades of NJIT experience and intellectual capital in the fields of sustainability and industrial ecology, environmental science, operations management and decision analytics, organizational behavior, and business data science.
