Green Transition Actions

Green transition at CBS has many faces, forms and directions. On this page we have gathered different initiatives from all levels of our organization. It's for you to be inspired and motivated.


CBS Campus Sustainability Programme
The mission of the CBS Campus Sustainability Programme is to implement the approved campus sustainability strategy and a matching profile with specified goals initiatives. Simultaneously, the CBS Campus Sustainability Programme wants to include campus users in the green conversion of campus. Thus it will be possible for campus users to register minor projects to be implemented continuously.
The project is led by CBS Campus Services and was launched in 2020.
CBS Campus Sustainability Programme has an ambition to prioritise and ensure synergy between initiatives based on ‘green cases’ which evaluate potential projects as to their impact on the social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainability.
If you wish to know more or have project proposals you are welcome to contact CBS Campus Sustainability Manager Anna Gallaus, / Campus Services:

PRME - Principles for Responsible Management Education
CBS is a pioneer in embedding UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and is currently reviewing everything we do through this lens. It is the ambition to make responsible management development an integral part of our core activities both in research and education, while looking for examples through our own organizational practices in the delivery of our services. The six PRME principles constitute the foundation for the work we do on responsible management education.
