VELUX Professorship in Corporate Sustainability (VELUX Endowed Professor)


CBS Sustainability Platform is a new initiative at CBS and the first platform to unfold CBS Business in Society Strategy into research, educational and outreach practices. Sustainability is one of the grand societal challenges and CBS has therefore positioned sustainability at the core of its strategy. The objective of CBS’s application to the VELUX Foundation is to substantially strengthen, sharpen and broaden existing knowledge and programs on sustainability at CBS by recruiting a team of high international quality: a VELUX Professor, a post doc and a PhD, and by providing economic support for CBS business school students on issues of sustainability. The professor with her/his team will engage research and education to bridge research on sustainability across disciplines at CBS and beyond, support CBS students, and mobilize external networks of international scholars and practitioners to place CBS among the most internationally acknowledged business schools on corporate sustainability. Importantly, the VELUX Professor of Corporate Sustainability will imply a wider societal significance in the local context, where s/he will act as a catalyst, helping with the development of corporate expertise, strengthening the wider Danish capacity in the area of sustainability. The Sustainability Platform is directed by Professors Mette Morsing and Stefano Ponte.
