School of Business
Our research group is focused on studying technical, economic, social and environmental aspects of industrial activities. The rapid technological development entails a major upheaval and offers new opportunities to contribute to a sustainable society.
Professionals in the sector play an important role in the transition to sustainable practices and processes, and there is a need for continuous research to contribute to knowledge useful in implementing practical solutions.
Sustainable industry and sustainability reporting are central themes for the group's research. The prerequisite for a sustainable industry is new business models based on a circular economy, i.e. that products and materials are to be reused and circulated.
By highlighting and updating sustainability issues within industrial activities, sustainability reporting can contribute to drive changes that improve organizational sustainability performance.
