Center for Sustainable Business

Increase value from corporate sustainability

The Center for Sustainable Business at ESMT Berlin promotes sustainability among companies.

Our flagship initiative is the Sustainable Business Roundtable (SBRT), a peer-to-peer learning network of 25 international companies that meet twice a year at ESMT to solve different sustainability challenges. The Sustainable Business Roundtable member companies include Accenture, Adidas, Aegon, BASF, Coca-Cola European Partners, Covestro, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Telekom, E.ON, Enel, Evonik, Fragomen, Fraport, H&M, IBM, ING, McDonald’s, McKesson, Merck, Orange, Osram, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Siemens, UniCredit, and Volkswagen. Learn more about the Sustainable Business Roundtable.

We also work with companies to generate sustainability insights, e.g., currently researching sustainability issues and best practices in the real estate industry for a real estate company ZIEGERT. In addition, we organize different sustainability events and engage with our students interested in corporate sustainability. Learn more about what we do and how you can benefit from it.
