 3rd International Summer School, Sustainability in International Business – September 2024

SUSTAINABILITY is becoming an increasingly important direction in business operations. It is rooted in the negative consequences of the neo-liberal development paradigm in the world and the calls for sustainable development by international organisations and national governments. The latter implies that countries, organisations, and individuals focus on achieving economic prosperity and positively impacting the natural environment and society.

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS involves interactions and business activities between many countries, companies, and stakeholders. Companies are responding to calls to implement sustainability in their business practices with varying degrees of commitment; some incorporate aspects of all three pillars of sustainability (economic, social, environmental) into their international business practices, while others focus on just one or two. Different types of companies offer many examples of good practices in this area.
