Research Research is one of the core activities at the University of St. Gallen, along with teaching and executive education. Our staff conducts research and publishes academic articles that address diverse subject areas- Responsibility and sustainability is among them. The university examines and analyses a wide array of topics within the realm of corporate responsibility and sustainability, primarily in the following subject areas: Business Sustainability Management of Renewable Energies Corporate Social Responsibility Logistics and Supply Chain Management Diversity Management Social Entrepreneurship International Engagement 1. Business Sustainability HSG’s commitment to develop future decision makers who acknowledge the importance of their responsibility towards society and the environment is reflected in its business sustainability research activities. The research in this area is mainly based at the Chair for Sustainability Management (IWOE-HSG), but also takes place at the Swiss Sustainability Hub (SSH) and the St.Gallen Institute of Management in Latin America (GIMLA). 2. Management of Renewable Energies Climate change, energy dependence and volatile resource prices create new challenges that various research projects at different HSG institutes address. Research is mainly based at the Good Energies Chair for Management of Renewable Energies (IWOE-HSG). The Centre for Energy Innovation, Governance and Investment (EGI-HSG) and the Institute of Technology Management (ITEM-HSG) are also doing research in further aspects of this area. 3. Corporate Social Responsibility Corporate social responsibility is a research topic of interest to various stakeholders and affects a broad spectrum of our society. HSG addresses it from different angles. Both the Institute for Business Ethics (IWE-HSG) and the Centre for Leadership and Values in Society (CLVS-HSG) conduct research in this area. 4. Logistics and Supply Chain Management R&S play a growing role in logistics and supply chain management. The Chair of Logistics Management (LOG-HSG) plays a key role here. 5. Diversity Management The University of St.Gallen is committed to teaching and research activities that promote diversity and inclusion. It aims to develop future business leaders who respect gender issues, human diversity and disability through different research projects and courses. The main research institutions are the Center for Disability and Integration (CDI-HSG), the Competence Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI-HSG), the Institute for Leadership and Human Resource Management (I.FPM-HSG), the Research Institute for Organizational Psychology (OPSY-HSG) and the Swiss Institute for Empirical Economic Research (SEW-HSG). 6. Social Entrepreneurship Scholars address Social Entrepreneurship from very different angles and at very different institutes.The Institute for Business Ethics (IWE-HSG), the Swiss Research Institute of Small Business and Entrepreneurship (KMU-HSG) and the Executive School of Management, Technology and Law (ES-HSG) conduct research in this area. 7. International Engagement Research engagements are rarely regionally restricted. Nevertheless, certain engagements in the responsibility and sustainability field have a specific international focus. These are the Responsible Research in Business and Management, the Transatlantic Doctoral Academy on Business, Economics & Ethics (TADA) and the Inter-continental Network for Business Ethics (IBEN).
