Organizations are bounded by the environmental and social systems around them - their context. From a strategic perspective, companies are expected to look beyond their own boundaries and take into account their context. This holds especially true when considering sustainability of a specific organization and its operations. Context refers to the different circumstances that determine whether or not a specific performance is considered sustainable or not. In this course, students will learn how a specific context can be established and analyzed to measure, manage and report sustainability. Students analyze and discuss the peculiarities of sustainability in different contexts (country, industry, firm size...). The specific focus of this course depends on the respective lecturer.
