Balancing the tensions between short term exploitation and long-term sustainability

Professor Alf Steinar Sætre has in collaboration with master students Julie Dahl Benum and Ingeborg Gjærum investigated the tensions between short term profit and long-term sustainability.

In their report, they provide a historical overview and focus specifically on issues where the interests of society and the interests of corporations seems to be—and a times are—at odds with one another. They discuss the roots of this imbalance, and suggests Shared Value Creation as a solution for this, focusing on how corporations can generate profits while solving pressing social and environmental issues facing societies around the world today.
