The Institute focusses on bridging the gap between theory and practice and translates its research and conceptual work in the area of business sustainability into concrete tools.
We also work on external projects for which we are commissioned.
A great example is the creation of a framework for a new CEO Impact Rating for Switzerland, initiated by the Schweizerische Umweltstiftung and their Schweizer Umweltpreis. This new rating, which for a first time assesses the impact a CEO and his organization have on society and the environment, will be launched in 2021 and published by the BILANZ as a world premiere.
To date CEO ratings assume that the company performance equals the CEO performance. Our framework differentiates between the two and furthermore looks at the impact beyond traditional shareholders and stakeholders, to measure a broader impact and contribution to society.
