RESPMAN Responsible Management Research Group

RESPMAN Responsible Management Research Group at the University of Tampere conducts research on the relationships between business, society and nature from different perspectives, including responsible management, firm-stakeholder interaction, corporate responsibility and sustainable development. We have been operating as a consortium of Department of Management Studies and Department of Economics and Accounting at the University of Tampere since 2006.

In addition to the research and teaching, we participate in societal discussions regarding corporate responsibilities and business ethics. Likewise, we also co-operate with companies from different industries in the issues of corporate responsibility and business ethics as well as stakeholder management and stakeholder strategies.

Our special research focus and experience is on:
– responsible management
– social and environmental accounting and reporting
– business-stakeholder interaction
– business ethics
