Sustainability is increasingly becoming a social focus. Responsible use of resources and a trusting relationship with employees and suppliers are particularly important for family businesses. The current study of the WIFU therefore deals with the social and ecological sustainability activities of family businesses. The aim of this study is to find out what motivation family businesses are committed to sustainability and how deeply sustainability activities are anchored in day-to-day operations. Members of family businesses and business families are invited to participate in this questionnaire. Please contact Prof. Dr. Marcel Hülsbeck for further information.

We will plant a tree for every successful participation. Following the questionnaire, you will also receive your individual sustainability profile and your socio-emotional profile in comparison to other family businesses. We also organize practical forum at the Witten/Herdecke University, where we present and discuss the results.
