It disseminates knowledge and makes available appropriate latest modern management and decision making tools and techniques to business leaders. The Centre develops designs and delivers short term and long term training programs, and organizes highly tailored workshops according to specific needs of corporate and non-corporate sectors.

CBS also believes in information dissemination and brings together best practices by organizing key events such as seminars, conferences, panel discussions, etc. in the field of business sustainability.
Being an integral part of Indian Institute of Management Lucknow, the expertise in leadership, strategy, organizational change, marketing and innovation with related fields is abundantly available to the Centre. IIML has strong linkages with policy makers, so CBS also carries out research and provides inputs for formulation of effective public policies in the field of business sustainability. The Centre undertakes consulting projects and thereby extends its services nationally as well as internationally.
