The ESCP Europe Chair of Environment and Economics - founded in the Summer of 2011 - picks up these topics in innovative ways. In teaching, knowledge of current environmental problems is provided jointly with the economic and environmental instruments for their solution, as well as operational scope and opportunities in dealing with them. The Chair also represents the subject of Economics where it focuses in particular on behavior- and decision-theoretic approaches of advanced microeconomics.
In research, behavioral economic approaches are also linked to environmental issues. Here, innovative methods, such as multi-agent systems/genetic algorithms for behavior modeling in simulation models are used in order to increase understanding of the behavior of economic actors. Environmental issues of interest are climate change, energy transition, resource scarcity and sustainable development.
The chair holder Prof. Dr. Sylvie Geisendorf is Scientific Director of the Research Center on Sustainability: Business and Society - Towards a Sustainable World and European Academic Director of the Master in International Sustainability Management.
Furthermore she is responsible for the major sustainability within the Master in Management.
