ZNU – Center for Sustainable Leadership at Witten/Herdecke University (UW/H)

The ZNU – Center for Sustainable Leadership is an application-oriented research institute in the Faculty of Economics, Management and Society at the Witten/Herdecke University. Our mission is to make sustainability tangible and to inspire managers for the opportunities of sustainable management. We are committed to this in the areas of research, teaching, professional education and conferences.

Our focus is on transparent measurability and successful implementation of sustainable development in companies and along their value chains. In this way, the ZNU would like to make a contribution to the objectification of the social sustainability debates. With people at the heart of a more sustainable way of doing business, we are also continuously developing the sustainability skills of today’s and tomorrow’s leaders. True along the lines of driving sustainable change, we thus make sustainability tangible in practice and empower people to consciously seize the personal and corporate opportunities of a more sustainable way of doing business.

As an application-oriented institute, the focus of our research and teaching is on the evaluation, measurability and implementation of sustainability at the company and product level. Our approach is very practice-oriented, the economic core of ZNU research is complemented in a targeted interdisciplinary way.
