Smart Management for Sustainability

The Smart Management for Sustainability area is a multidisciplinary research group aimed at building and promoting firms’ competitive advantages. Its research focuses on the two main strategic challenges faced by companies: transitions to sustainability under the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) management.

The team develops and implements models for transition to sustainability, with the purpose to maximize the triple bottom line (economic, social, and environmental). Under an open-innovation model, the area identifies value-creation strategies that, simultaneously, allow generating value to all stakeholders and the society at-large.
