”Located in Freiburg (Germany), the ‘mvk-Kutzschenbach Institute for Sustainability Studies’ is a think tank that is committed to utilizing inter- and trans-disciplinary knowledge to develop solutions for promoting a sustainable future for all.
The challenge of sustainability is a complex and wicked problem and our approach is two pronged. Our focus supports both entrepreneurship and multi-stakeholder decision making in developing actionable engagement strategies for client organizations. The areas of entrepreneurial innovation and organizational learning are central to any efforts to improve economic, social and ecological performance in an increasingly digital world.
Our goal is to pursue collaborative action research and project work that facilitates innovation and learning. An important objective in this work is to identify and improve organizational dynamics that initially created complex problems. The vision guiding our work is that of helping organizations to take their social responsibilities more seriously by providing innovative and effective business paradigms and tools for implementation.”
