The five year collaboration between the Governing Responsible Business research environment and the VELUX endowed chair in Corporate Sustainability came to an end. Last week we celebrated with colleagues and friends from near and far.

On June 20, 2019, the Governing Responsible Research Centre (GRB) together with the Velux Endowed Chair in Corporate Sustainability completed the five year collaboration with a day with keynote presenters, discussions and networking. Welcomed by the new president of CBS, Nikolaj Malchow-Møller, the participants from academic, institutional and industrial backgrounds from Denmark and abroad enjoyed the speeches by Lise Kingo, Ben Cashore and Cass Sunstein. The event was interactive however, as each talk was followed by group discussions that generated sharp questions to the speakers and the panel discussion in the end, which was moderated by Susanne Stormer. GRB co-director Andreas Rasche and Velux professor Jeremy Moon guided through the programme. We thank everyone who enriched the day with her/his presence and contribution to the discussions and look forward to the next event of CBS Sustainability.

The formal end of this collaboration does however not mean its efforts and activities will vanish! The researcher blog Business of Society will continue, as well as the Sustainability Seminar Series and having academic fellows at CBS. As the academic director to-be, Jeremy Moon will continue to drive both excellent research and related activities at CBS Sustainability. That being said, stay tuned on our diverse outlets as there are facebook and twitter, mostly for events and news, our blog featuring research pieces from within the centre and guest posts, and instagram for the more visual coverage of what we do and like.
