A “young” institute turns 30! Founded back in 1992, IWÖ-HSG was one of the first research institutes at a leading business school to focus on sustainability. Three decades later, concerns about climate change and biodiversity loss are at the center of the public debate, and the Institute’s contributions to research and teaching on topics of corporate sustainability and renewable energy management are in high demand. To celebrate our anniversary, we joined forces with our colleagues from the Institute of Accounting, Control and Auditing ACA-HSG, which happens to have been founded in the same year. The newly appointed tenure track assistant professor of Sustainability Governance, Dr. Judith Ströhle, shared her insights on “Current Debates in Accounting for Sustainability” with a deep dive into carbon accounting, highlighting interesting areas for future research at the interface of both institutes. Thanks to the many alumni, team members, business and research partners, and university representatives who joined for an evening full of insightful exchanges.
