Sustainability and Business Innovation
Sustainability Transition Management

The great social challenges of our time, incorporated into the 2030 agenda of the United Nations through the objectives of sustainable development and the crisis of modern capitalism based on maximum shareholder value, require a change of course in traditional business models and put the issue of corporate sustainability back at the centre. In this context, a new model of entrepreneurship is emerging where companies respond to social problems through new models, methods and products and services combining the objectives of economic and financial performance with the pursuit of a positive social impact. The module addresses the main concepts, approaches and practices to understand the main forms of social innovation and their impact on production and organisational processes and the effects on the reputation of enterprises.
