MAS-ESS ESSAY COMPETITION: “Does environmental sustainability make economic and business sense?

The aim is to encourage debate on issues related to sustainability and climate change. The essays should be well researched and informed and should provide new analyses and perspectives as far as possible. They should also be written in such a way that they are accessible to a wide audience. They are therefore not meant to be academic ‘journal-style’ papers. The essays must be original in content.
