Gyula Zilahy


Gyula Zilahy has been actively involved in teaching issues related to the interconnection of business and sustainability for more than 20 years both in Hungary and abroad. His various research projects examined the different manifestations of responsible company management; the human factors behind the environmental activities of organisations; factors motivating cooperation between different social groups and the state of sustainability education around the world. Currently he explores the sustainability impacts of new, innovative business models, such as the shared economy and product-service systems. While his results appear in high impact international journals he has also provided practical advice to both small enterprises and large corporations in the field of sustainability management.
