Making Sustainability and CSR Research Matter
How can sustainability research be made relevant to civil society as well as business?
How can societal relevance be achieved without compromising a critical research agenda?
What kinds of foci and formats can be fruitfully developed in order for research to benefit society?
This roundtable discussion addresses these questions by bringing together academics and representatives from Carlsberg, Red Cross and Save the Children.
