How to manage the transition to sustainable companies?

Reconciling ecological, social, and economic sustainability in management and technology development is one of today’s major challenges. The panel discussion will explore organizations’ transformation pathways toward a more sustainable future. The discussants will provide insights on current developments within their companies and innovative technology trends. However, a successful transformation to ecological, social and economic sustainable companies requires new insights into processes, tools, methods, and approaches to master the grand challenges of a transformation. The panel discussion will underpin the current and future capabilities needed by students and graduates.
