Department of Organization

PhD fellow

Federico Jensen

I am pursuing a double-Ph.D. degree at Copenhagen Business School, Department of Organization, and University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, School of Economics and Management.

My research focusses on the Chinese shipping and port management sectors and their organization in relation to National and Global sustainability practices and regulation. This project is financed by the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research.

I am generally interested in state-capital relations and their interactions in relation to sustainability practices, furthermore I am interested in the role of lead firms and other powerful actor’s in pressuring suppliers to achieve more sustainable production systems and what does this mean for the opportunities of all actors to capture value from the system.

Prior to this project, I have studied Sustainable Industrialization practices in Ethiopia, focusing on their growing apparel sector in the country, based in ‘Eco-Industrial Parks’.
