Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Corporate Social Responsibility is an integral part of the research and consulting project portfolio of the Management Center Innsbruck (MCI). In particular the Management Center Innsbruck spearheaded the discussion of corporate social responsibility in the Western Austrian region through various public fora based on a set of research projects. These projects investigated empirically a broad range of issues such as the interrelationship of CSR and corporate strategy, the effect CSR has on customer loyalty, or the nexus of CSR and corporate governance. These research projects are carried out in tight collaboration with regional and national corporate actors covering a diverse universe of sectors such as food industry, wood, pulp & paper or retail. The research is documented in a number of working papers, research reports and journal publications.
Our future research interest is to develop a holistic view of ethical decision making and to evaluate its dimensions for business action. Additionally the rather new development of shared-value practices will be investigated and discussed in the context of CSR.
