Guest Lecturer: Clara My Lernborg
Content: This lecture is intended to provide a basis for an understanding of what constitutes economic sustainability, how it relates to other forms of sustainability studied in the course, and ultimately how it may relate to ICT. Within business administration studies, there is a wide variety of perspectives on sustainability for business, and especially on sustainable markets, and you will gain an overview of different perspectives. You will also be presented with some of the business tools and practices that are used in order to promote [economic] sustainability.
