Leadership and innovation for sustainability

Leadership and innovation for sustainability

The Department of Strategic Sustainable Development at BTH builds competence for sustainable societal development. We research and educate about methodological support for companies, municipalities and other organizations that want to work strategically with sustainability, that is, who want to contribute to society as a whole’s transition to sustainability in ways that strengthen their own organization.

We attract partners and students from all over the world and make a strong contribution to BTH’s focus on digitalisation and sustainability.

In addition to our regular education on campus and online , there are opportunities for adapted commissioned training for competence development within companies and other organizations, for example in one of the following areas.

STRATEGIC SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

How can your organization contribute to sustainable societal development in a way that strengthens the organization in both the short and long term?

LEADERSHIP IN COMPLEXITY

How can the leadership in your organization be strengthened so that you can engage employees and achieve your sustainability goals – together?

Complexity leadership methodology can help your organization engage people for change and development of the organization into a flexible and adaptive system that acts proactively and strategically for sustainability.

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT AND SERVICE DEVELOPMENT

How can your organization contribute to and benefit from a transition to a sustainable transport
system?

Methodologies for sustainable transport system development can help business leaders, politicians, physical planners, transport planners and other decision-makers to develop and realize better overall solutions from a strategic sustainability perspective.

SUSTAINABLE
VALUE CHAIN MANAGEMENT

How can collaboration in a value chain be supported by integrating a strategic sustainability
perspective?

All organizations today are part of a value chain. While many organizations today see the self-interest in switching to sustainability, this can not reach more than a limited level if the entire value chain is not taken into account and is also part of this work. A collaboration in the value chain is often absolutely crucial to cope with the entire transition and to make this sufficiently efficient and competitive.

SUSTAINABLE MUNICIPAL AND REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT

How can municipalities and regions integrate a strategic sustainability perspective in their business processes and plans?

Municipalities and regions are key players in sustainable societal development. For the best effect, methodological support is needed to navigate the complex sustainability challenge in a coordinated, systematic and strategic way, for the use of synergies between sectors.

SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

How can your organization innovate towards a sustainable food future?

Support and strategies for organizations, companies and community groups to understand the role they play in creating a sustainable food system and how they can begin to create that future in a holistic and innovative way.
