Research groups

Corporate sustainability and business models

The research group operates in the research fields of corporate sustainability (CS), corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainable business models (SBM), by deepening the application of sustainable development principles in the business context. The group studies the evolution in business models led by sustainable innovation, under the three dimensions economic, environmental and social, the processes and sustainable practices introduced in the organisation and the subsequent outcomes on performance measurement and reporting. Among research aims of the groups there are the analysis and theorization of typologies/archetypes/patterns of business models for sustainability, the management tools, the business model representation and the value creation processes. A particular focus is attributed to business models for the circular economy, collaborative business models and cross-sector partnerships, and to hybrid businesses such as B corps.
