There is a debate around the potential cost of a green transition. "Greenflation" would be caused by a higher demand for greener solutions, and the consequences of new public policies (e.g. green taxes). How can we deal with the social tensions that could possibly arise with greenflation? 

The consequences of the Covid pandemic have reached every country in the world, causing a huge rise in poverty and social vulnerability even in rich countries. What can Business Schools do in order to address this situation?

What are the main barriers preventing the world from reaching Net-Zero carbon emissions, both at the macro level (geopolitics, industrial barriers, etc.) and at the micro level (individual behaviour)?

How do corporations create new value through low carbon practice?

What is the potential negative social impact of AI, and what are the possible solutions accordingly?
