Prof. Eric Cornuel, CEO & Director General, EFMD

“Glasgow School for Business and Society greatly welcomed the launch of the GSE Research SOL collection, not simply because it provides an invaluable resource and reference point for research and best practice in the areas of governance, sustainability and environmental management, but also because of the principles for which it stands as reflected in particular in its emphasis on and promotion of environmental and ethical values. The School is proud to be a GSE/Greenleaf Partner.”
