Realizing Corporate Sustainability in a Globalized World (RealSusty)
This project, funded by the UC Berkeley Peder Sather Center for Advanced Study, brings together scholars from the University of Oslo and UC Berkeley in an exploration of prerequisites for corporate sustainability.
About the project
The project focuses on the Nordic region and California, two regions often characterized as demonstrating global corporate sustainability leadership, to undertake a comparative analysis of theories, policies and practice. Through a greater understanding of commonalities and differences between these contexts, we intend to identify a suite of best practices that may serve as building blocks for global corporate sustainability with potential for application throughout the world.
Drawing on the expertise of the University of Oslo’s participants in the SMART Project and the Center for Responsible Business at UC Berkeley, Haas Business School, the project Realizing Corporate Sustainability in a Globalized World (RealSusty) sets out to identify corporate governance models for sustainability necessary to achieve the transition from current efforts of corporate social responsibility (CSR) to real corporate sustainability.
