کمیته اقتصاد پایدار

دانشگاه صنعتی امیرکبیر (AUT) پیشگام مطالعات توسعه پایدار در بین دانشگاه های ایران است.

در طول تاریخ ، اقتصاد به طور مداوم به عنوان یکی از سه پایه اساسی توسعه پایدار و یکی از اصول اساسی جوامع بشری مورد توجه قرار گرفته است.

به نظر می رسد در نتیجه نقش اساسی اقتصاد کلان در مطالعات توسعه پایدار و نبود یک بخش اختصاصی اقتصاد در AUT ، ایجاد یک گروه مطالعات اقتصادی در دفتر توسعه پایدار امری ضروری به نظر می رسد. به همین دلیل است که برخی از دانشجویان علاقه مند به علم اقتصاد برای تشکیل یک گروه مطالعاتی سازمان یافته گرد هم آمده اند و از اساتید شناخته شده در این زمینه بهره می گیرند تا این موضوعی که کمتر مورد توجه قرار می گیرد موضع مورد نظر خود را بدست آورند.

گروه اقتصادی AUT در دفتر توسعه پایدار (SUST-ECON )سعی دارد علاوه بر مطالعات توسعه پایدار و همچنین انجام فعالیتهای مختلف با هدف بالا بردن درک اقتصادی دانش آموزان ، به موضوعات اساسی اقتصادی در سطح کلان توجه کند.

What is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)?

CSR as defined by UNIDO is:

A management concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and interactions with their stakeholders. CSR is generally understood as being the way through which a company achieves a balance of economic, environmental and social imperatives (“Triple-Bottom-Line- Approach”), while at the same time addressing the expectations of shareholders and stakeholders.

Responsible Companies in the age of globalization

How a company perceives its societal responsibility depends on various factors such as the markets in which it operates, its business line and its size.

In recent years CSR has become a fundamental business practice and has gained much attention from the management of large international companies. They understand that a strong CSR program is an essential element in achieving good business practices and effective leadership. Companies have explored that their impact on the economic, social and environmental sector directly affects their relationships with investors, employees and customers.
