CBS Sustainability


Collaboration and stakeholder involvement – both internally and externally – are key priorities.



Engaging with stakeholders is usually considered germane to corporate policy with regard to sustainability, and this is no less the case with CBS Sustainability. Collaboration and stakeholder involvement – both internally and externally – are key priorities. CBS Sustainability is particularly keen on developing cross-departmental research and teaching collaboration. We work closely with the following student organizations, offices and centres at CBS:

CBS - Centre for Business and Development Studies

CBS - Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility

PRME & Sustainability Office


180 Degrees Consulting

Apart from CBS faculty, other important stakeholders are:

  1. Our alumni
  2. CBS’ corporate partners and beyond
  3. Other (international) stakeholders, e.g. NGOs and government agencies

Alumni involvement

CBS Sustainability engages in a CBS alumni organization for sustainability on LinkedIn. We aspire to activate this community of 500 members through a series of events and initiatives with the long-term goal of establishing a self-sufficient alumni organization and engaging alumni in sustainability research projects, as guest lecturers, and as mentors for CBS students interested in sustainability. Please click here if you are a CBS alumni that would like to join the network. We also welcome alumni to contact us regarding ways that you can contribute individually through mentoring or guest lecturing or if you have ideas for events or assiting with the development of a self-sufficient alumni organization.

Corporate partners

Many of CBS’ corporate partners are actively engaged in developing technological, organizational and institutional solutions to many of the issues associated with sustainable development. CBS Sustainability seeks to involve companies in many of its activities, e.g. seminars, workshops, publication forums and targeted corporate programs, etc. CBS partners with corporations from a wide range of industries, i.e.: Tryg, Danske Bank, Nordea, PwC, Nykredit, British American Tobacco, Deloitte, Euler Hermes, KPMG, BG Fonden, Novozymes, Grundfos, Velux, Carlsberg Group, DSB, Maersk, Novo Nordisk, Vestas, Ernst & Young, IBM and Dong Energy.

Other (international) stakeholders

Governmental bodies such as the Danish ministries and other agencies engage in the sustainability agenda and collaborate with CBS Sustainability on various activities such as research funding and the development of projects. CBS Sustainability also collaborates with non-governmental bodies such as international NGOs and international associations such asIBIS, the UN Global Compact and other stakeholders which provide a point of departure for engagement and joint activities.
