Professor Niklas Egels Zandén, PhD: Leadership for sustainable strategy and supply chains

Managers and scholars agree that integrating sustainability into the business strategy of the firm is central in solving global social and environmental challenges.

We will illustrate with corporate examples and leading international research how firms can work to integrate sustainability into strategy and supply chains.
