The striving for sustainable development is one of the great challenges of the 21st century. As a result on a corporate level, companies are increasingly forced to broaden their scope by considering environmental and social aspects in their decision-making processes to ultimately remain competitive and prospering. However, the incorporation of sustainability into both qualitative and quantitative corporate decision-making is challenging and complex.
Against this background the present doctoral dissertation reveals ways to implement and enhance corporate sustainability. This is done by means of integrating selected methods and concepts, namely the concepts of transdisciplinarity, reverse logistics, and green information systems as well as methods and tools from the discipline of operations research. Within seven research contributions qualitative and quantitative approaches are developed that improve corporate decision-making to achieve sustainability goals.
