Growth-Neutral Companies

In Germany, options and necessities of a "post-growth society" are being increasingly discussed. In this discourse, however, the essential role that companies could and should play in a corresponding transformation process is left out. The IOEW study "Growth-neutral companies" therefore explores and shows ways how ecological and economic growth limits can be dealt with at the corporate level. The focus will be on the qualities that may result from a proactive approach to such limitations. The study is in this sense a plea for a Leitbild of growth-neutral corporate governance. In this Leitbild, the currently constricted notions of corporate success are left behind in favor of a variety of alternative development prospects of companies.
