Sustainability in Higher Education From the Perspective of Business Ethics and Corporate Sustainability
Aim: In this epilogue to the special issue, the author provides a reflection on the commonalities between the origins of business ethics and corporate sustainability on the one hand, and Higher Education for Sustainable Development on the other hand. Design / Research methods: The paper is reflective and provides future avenues to further develop the fields of business ethics, corporate sustainability, and Higher Education for Sustainable Development. Conclusions / findings: Although both fields developed independently, they share the same focus on interdisciplinary studies, integrated thinking, and looking beyond the short term and local interests. Originality / value of the article: In the end, both disciplines are carried by a fundamental normative choice for an inclusive, sustainable society, a choice that should never be forgotten and is the horizon of all our research.(original abstract)
