Thanks to a generous grant from the VILLUM FOUNDATION (15 million DKK), CBS in 2014 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.

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.
