Prof. Dr. Christopher Tang

SO 318

im Rahmen des CDSB Research Seminars freuen wir uns, Herrn Prof. Dr. Christopher Tang von der UCLA Anderson School of Management USA bei uns begrüßen zu dürfen.

Am Freitag, den 09.06. hat Herr Prof. Dr. Moritz Fleischmann ihn eingeladen von 13:30 bis 14:30 Uhr einen Vortrag zum Thema „Managing Supply Chains in the ESG Era” zu halten.


In today’s economy, investors pay attention to ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) measures.  However, ESG measures can be distorted if they do not explicitly incorporate a firm’s operations throughout its entire supply chain. In this talk, I discuss the key drivers for ESG investing, as well as the importance and value of unifying ESG and supply chain thinking. Finally, I discuss a recent research project and present some key challenges and opportunities for practitioners and researchers in both ESG and supply chain management.
