Research results



In spring 2022 Partnership organised survey about sustainable entrepreneurship. 224 students and teachers from 3 partner Universities from Latvia, Finland and Germany took part in the survey about sustainable entrepreneurship.

Results show the tendency that students and teachers in general have some information about sustainability, but when it comes to more deeper knowledge, the numbers are decreasing. More about the results you can read HERE.



Partnership aims to create the most up-to-date training material for students and entrepreneurs and in order to be able to do that there was a need to conduct a research on existing sustainable business practices. Research was done by experts from 3 partner Universities and it was implemented in autumn 2022 and beginning of 2023. Outcomes of applied research are published in the REPORT which can be useful material for learners, entrepreneurs, policy makers and decision makers. 

In the report you can explore Social entrepreneurship and sustainable entrepreneurship concepts, different understanding of those concepts in 3 partner countries. Also you can learn more about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Concept of Corporate Social Responsibility and other concepts which have become established in the field of sustainability. Most probably you have heard such terms as ecopreneurship, zero-waste, climate neutrality or circular economy – learn more about those terms in the report!

This report gives you an introduction into International standards for sustainable business practices, will give you possibility to explore different methods and tools. 

By conducting report partners interviewed 23 different companies from Germany, Finland and Latvia about their sustainability practices. In this report you can read about those companies and best practices.
