Contents

Economic and especially entrepreneurial activities take place in a social context. This gives rise to a responsibility on the part of

the actors involved, be it citizens, consumers, companies, governments or non-profit organisations. This event will examine

how "doing business in a socially responsible manner" is possible. It aims to interest students in questions of social

responsibility and to enable them to take a meta-perspective of their individual actions and the relationship between ethics

and economics.

Outline:

Chapter 1: Global trends and prerequisites for responsible action

Chapter 2: Economic view: Development of Sustainability and Sustainable Development Goals

Chapter 3: The Role of the Individual - Ethics, Responsibility, Images of Humanity

Chapter 4: Economic systems and economic subjects

Chapter 5: Sustainability in firms in times of digital transformation

Chapter 6: Strategy and sustainability management

Chapter 7: Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Citizenship

Chapter 8: Measuring and reporting sustainability and social responsibility

Chapter 9: Individual fields of action in the economic context
