What is Green Transition?

Climate Change is the largest challenge of our times and calls for a radical green transition of the economy, politics, and society at large. The European New Green Deal and Denmark’s very ambitious target of reducing CO2 emissions by 70% by 2030 and achieving climate-neutrality by 2050 calls for ambitious and bold research, novel education, innovation, action, and enhanced collaboration. Reaching these goals will be challenging and further complicated by an increased focus on scarce natural resources and biodiversity as well as the political ambitions of lowering emissions while maintaining economic growth.

Green Transition offers the Danish and international business community challenges as well as huge opportunities. Business as usual is not possible and issues range from navigating new and changing customer demands to the development and implementation of entirely new markets, business models, technologies, and products. Research based knowledge as well as business administration candidates with sharp green competence profiles are key to successful green transition.


What can CBS do?

CBS has a long tradition of strong research environments and interdisciplinary research in disciplines, such as finance, economics, marketing, management, innovation, and strategy - all relevant for the challenge of green transition. CBS’ cross-disciplinary educational programmes and strong business network are also key to transforming business and society and meeting the enormous challenges ahead. Current activities focus on bringing together key players internally and externally, creating transparency of current activities, pursuing external funding, and stimulating even more concrete problem-based research and new green educational activities.
