The main objectives of the Business and Society research cluster are:
1. Interdisciplinary and critical analysis of the multi-dimensional responsibilities of businesses and other organizations within their local and wider social and natural environment as well as with regard to their external and internal stakeholders;
2. (Further) development of theoretical frameworks as well as practice-oriented and applicable concepts for identifying, measuring and managing core values and key principles of sustainable business practices and other organizational activities with social, societal and environmental impact;
