Business and Society - Towards a Sustainable World (SustBusy)

In cooperation with 15 other ESCP Europe members from France, Italy and Berlin, a new research center on issues of sustainability in business and society arises under the
scientific direction of Prof. Dr. Sylvie Geisendorf.

ESCP Europe has a considerable number of professors who are involved in research on and teaching of sustainability issues. The new research center "Business and Society - Towards a Sustainable World" (SustBusy), whose office
is located at the Chair of Environment and Economics in Berlin provides a common roof for these related activities.

The individual and group-related research projects cover a wide area of research issues. Company-specific issues, development of a sustainability culture, implementation of a sustainability strategy or sustainable supply chains are covered as well as CSR reporting, socially responsible investment, social issues of an anti-consumption lifestyle and economic analysis of environmental policy instrument effects, accounting for behavioral economic findings. The special feature of the research center is thus the broadly-based position of its members and its high potential for synergies. There are two main links between our approaches where the the projects might benefit from each other. First there are several projects on the company and reporting level which could exchange information on sustainability culture or strategy as well as CSR reporting. Second, the projects on company, consumer and financial market level would benefit from a link to the political/regulation side as well as this research could profit from empirical results on the behavior of the respective agents.

We are excited that SustBusy allows even closer cooperation and coordination of our activities.

In this sense: Sustainable success!
