Connecting Organizations in a Sustainable Society
A sustainable society promotes the simultaneous pursuit of economic, social and environmental goals, as reflected in concepts such as circular economy and corporate sustainability. But traditional top-down standard setting is often ineffective - stakeholders are increasingly contributing to sustainable regulation, and modern information technologies offer new and increasingly influential ways to organize and regulate economic activities. We seek to better understand how law enables, supports and challenges the new approaches in a sustainable society.
Our experts cover contract law, corporate law, family law, property law, tax law, tax economics, labor law, and tort law. Many also have an interdisciplinary background in, for example, economics, philosophy and IT. By collaborating with each other and with third parties, we can deliver context-specific and comprehensive results rather than fragmented proposals that overlook issues in other fields.
