Theme 3

“Organisational impact”

coordinator: Florian Lüdeke-Freund

At the heart of business models lies its value proposition. Sustainable business models distinguish themselves by building on the principle of multiple value creation. The underlying idea is that new business models are able to affect not just their own operations, but render positive ecological and social impacts also outside of the organisational boundaries, and doing so economically. The extent to which these impacts are realised when adopting NBMs is often unclear. The aim of theme three aims is to further clarify the impacts of adopting NBMs.
