Simon Norris has been working as a researcher and PhD candidate at the CSM (Professorship Sustainability Management of Prof. Stefan Schaltegger) since May 2017. Previously, he attained a Bachelor’s degree in International Business Administration from the University of Twente in the Netherlands. He then went on to acquire a Master of Science in Global Business & Sustainability from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. His current research focuses on strengthening the understanding of value creation processes in sustainable business models. He aims to contribute to this debate through cross-fertilisation of the concept with other concepts, theories, or management disciplines. These foci include product life cycles, supply chains, communication, or performance assessment perspectives on value and its creation.
