Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has advanced towards the top of the management agenda over the last decade, propelled by a growing public awareness that business activities have to be sustainable along the dimensions of governance, human rights, and environmental respect. The responsibility for this falls heavily on today’s and tomorrow’s business leaders.
i-MBA has initiated a range of activities in order to infuse and reinforce the imperative of responsible and sustainable development among students, faculty, alumni and the business community. We invite all visitors of these pages to contact us for discussing and collaborating around the issues of CSR (IMBAcsr@aueb.gr).
The current developments focus on the transition towards a circular economy, where the design of products and processes is fundamentally revamped to privilege fully renewable, recyclable or biodegradable materials that can be used in consecutive life cycles. Key concepts include “Cradle-to-Cradle” and “Waste to Wealth“. It represents a shift in strategic thinking about sustainability; from doing less bad to doing more good.
