Arild Aspelund from the Norwegian University of Science and TEchnology is going to introduce his research work on the firm sustainability and the relation to firm performance.

“Recently, Garetti and Taisch (2012) reviewed the development of European manufacturing of the last few decades. They concluded that sustainability remains the most pertinent challenge for the future development of the sector. This statement is strengthened by the recent Paris agreement (COP21), where 195 countries signed the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. Arguably, the sustainability challenge is the major industrial challenge of our time, but is it reasonable to assume that the industry itself will be able to address these challenges if sustainability strategies in general are unprofitable as most international managers seems to think? This talk reports some recent research on the sustainability – firm performance relationship in order to better understand how value and competitiveness can be created by adopting sustainability strategies in manufacturing firms.”

This talk is part of the Manufacturing Research Forum series.
