Celebrating 20 Years of Sustainability at CBS!

Event Description

Join us in celebrating the 20th anniversary of the CBS Sustainability Centre!

The centre came into being in May 2002 under the name CVR – Centre for Corporate Values and Responsibility. Later name changes into cbsCSR and then, in 2018, CBS Sustainability reflect changing research, teaching and dissemination agendas at CBS as well as wider societal developments in the realm of corporate responsibility and sustainability. That the centre has become a permanent presence also reflects the development of CBS as a business university over the last couple of decades.

The anniversary celebration will take a look back at the history and accomplishments of CBS Sustainability and its past and present members within the bigger scheme of things that is CBS. However, the occasion will be used primarily to discuss current and future opportunities and challenges in the field of sustainability. The anniversary celebration will thus provide snapshots of current research at the centre (and opportunities to discuss this research), and a panel debate with colleagues bringing different perspectives on the grand challenge of decarbonizing production and the economy.

After the formal part of the anniversary, there will be a social gathering at the centre.

When: Wednesday, December 7th at 14:00 CET
