With my PhD project I am interested in the EU’s governance of the sustainable transition of the economy and society using the EU Taxonomy as the vehicle for making private corporations sustainable. I study how private corporations are made subjects by the EU’s governing regime on green growth, and how corporations as autonomous subjects react to and identify with the EU’s ideal of the profitable, growing and sustainable corporation. Further, I am interested in examining the EU Taxonomy’s government of the sustainable corporation from the perspectives of degrowth and corporate imperialism, and discuss this new form of corporate governance in the light of previous scholarly critique of green growth and responsible corporate behavior.
