International Institute for Sustainability Management

Research Approach

Sustainability has become a guiding principle in business, politics, culture and society at large. It is understood in the IISM as a phenomenon that both has an effect in the long-term and is effective over the long-term; it is where economic, social, cultural and/or ecological systems come together. Building on this understanding, the institute deals with sustainability by focusing on the following areas: change management, marketing communications, cross-cultural management, Corporate Social Responsibility and green energy.

The IISM is engaged in the development and implementation of concepts relating to sustainability that are relevant, practical and suitable for all kinds of business and organisations.

Tasks & Objectives

The IISM’s aim is to conduct research in all three fields of sustainability and cover the ecological, economic and social impact on society. A core aspect of sustainability management is it that can be a marketing instrument for strengthening organisations’ brands and image. In order to do this successfully, organisations need to find the right mix of on-line and traditional marketing and communications tools; key to this is market research, including acceptance and feasibility studies.
