Global Sustainable Production focuses on sustainable production with a global outlook
In our research we look at development of global production and innovation networks and how they can become more sustainable. Our research pays special attention to how synergies between operational performance and sustainability can be achieved.
Our research falls within both social and environmental sustainability
Our research combines basic and applied research and is often undertaken in collaboration with large companies, government bodies, trade unions and NGOs. We are involved in large global research projects funded by national or international sponsors. In parallel, we are engaged in research about how hospitals can increase their operational performance preferable in tandem with improved sustainably practices.
