Le Monde discusses our Sustainability paper with G. Serafeim and B. Eccles!

Robert Eccles et George Serafeim, professeurs à Harvard, et Ioannis Ioannou, professeur à la London Business School, ont étudié l'impact organisationnel des politiques de responsabilité sociale.

S'appuyant sur l'analyse de 180 entreprises, les trois chercheurs montrent dans une étude récente que celles qui ont adopté et maintenu une politique volontaire de développement durable depuis le début des années 1990 se distinguent des autres ("The Impact of a Corporate Culture of Sustainability on Corporate Behavior and Performance", Harvard Business School Working Paper).

D'après les auteurs, l'ancrage soutenu dans le temps de la responsabilité sociale au cœur de la culture de ces organisations a contribué à changer leur fonctionnement en profondeur.

My Research

I am a strategy scholar whose research focuses on Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). More specifically, I seek to understand whether, how, and the extent to which the modern business organization contributes towards building a sustainable future. My academic work evolves around two main themes: a) understanding how investment analysts, and the public equity markets, perceive, evaluate and react to corporate engagement with, and integration of, environmental and social issues into strategy and b) understanding the multiple factors (e.g. institutional, regulatory, behavioural) that may affect, drive or hinder, the corporate decision to adopt environmentally and socially responsible strategies.
