Department of Business Administration invites to a research seminar.
Wednesday, 27 September 2023 at 16:00-17:30 MS Teams
A presentation by Minna Saunila (Associate Professor, LUT University).
The presentation focuses on the role of different digital technologies in facilitating sustainable business transition. While the application of digital technologies has placed a strong emphasis on improving productivity and efficiency and supporting daily engineering, production, and decision-making; more recently organizations have also begun to pay attention to leveraging digitalization as part of their sustainability activities. Technological developments are being leveraged as part of sustainable production facilitation in terms of energy efficiency, waste reduction or worker well-being among others. The presentation identifies several perspectives on how digital technologies can be used to facilitate sustainable business.
