Sustainably Successful?

With the Sustainable Value approach corporate sustainability performance can be measured in monetary terms and managed in a value-oriented way. The overall objective of the project "Sustainably successful?" is to apply and test-run this approach in the corporate context. In its first part of the project, the sustainability performance of 28 German companies was assessed using the Sustainable Value approach. During a second phase of the project, the approach was applied and tested in corporate prac­tice in different management areas. The third part was mainly concerned with dissemination and transfer of know how.
