Nachhaltig gemeinsame Wertschöpfung bildet hier die Brücke zwischen dem Wunsch nach mehr Nachhaltigkeit und der konkreten Umsetzung im Kerngeschäft.
Um den negativen Konsequenzen eines ungebremsten Wirtschaftens und den sich daraus ergebenden Rahmenbedingungen zu begegnen, bietet nachhaltig gemeinsame Wertschöpfung ein Offensivkonzept das profitables Wachstum in ökonomischer, ökologischer und gesellschaftlicher size ermöglicht. Neben dem konzeptionellen Rahmen, wird anhand vielfacher Beispiele aus der unternehmerischen Praxis beschrieben, wie ein Unternehmen nachhaltig gemeinsame Wertschöpfung erfolgreich umsetzen kann.
