The influence of ethical cultures on corporate sustainability

Project: Other

Project participants

As businesses are essential for tackling sustainability problems, the question arises how they can successfully address corporate sustainability. It is often expected that ethical cultures form a basis which allow companies to address sustainability challenges. Motivated by this expectation, the research project examines whether and how ethical cultures influence corporate sustainability by using a mixed methods approach. The underlying goal is to conceptualize the definition and differences of explicit ethical corporate cultures, the philosophical or ideological values that are forming the basis of such ethical cultures and its effects on corporate sustainability.
The project is funded by the Dr. Theo and Friedl Schöller Research Center for Business and Society.
