Velux Endowed Professor of Sustainability
In 2014 CBS established an Endowed Chair in Corporate Sustainability to significantly strengthen and develop CBS’ research, education and outreach in an area of the upmost importance to business and society. Corporate Sustainability, both as an intellectual inquiry and a field of practice, explores crucial aspects of the interface between private enterprise, public policy and civil society. The Endowed Chair was established based on a 15 million DKK grant from the Velux Foundation.
With Professor Jeremy Moon as the “VELUX Professor of Corporate Sustainability,” CBS has attracted a top researcher who for many years has garnered global recognition for his pioneering research, award-winning teaching, and his influential collaboration with companies and politicians. Jeremy Moon comes from a position as a Professor at Nottingham University Business School, UK, and Director of International Centre of Corporate Responsibility, one of Europe’s most renowned.
In addition to the Professorship, the VILLUM Foundation grant funds Assistant Professor Lauren McCarthy, PhD candidate Erin Leitheiser, PhD candidate Luisa Murphy and Research Assistant and Project Manager Louise Thomsen.
The VELUX Endowed Chair in Corporate Sustainability is housed within and hosted by the CBS Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (cbsCSR) and the Department of Mangement, Society and Communication (MSC) at Copenhagen Business School on the second floor of Dalgas Have 15, Frederiksberg, 2000.
