GRIIS does research on the social and environmental dimensions of business and of other types or organizations; in particular, their contribution to environmental sustainability and social justice. What distinguishes it is that, instead of seeing these aspects as ways to instrumentally improve business performance (i.e. the business case of sustainability or CSR), it asks about the social and environmental contribution (i.e. the social or environmental case): how do businesses and other actors (in collaboration or on their own) contribute to society and to the natural environment? And how can they do more or better?
GRIIS focuses on five main research lines: Stakeholder Dialogue and Participation; Sustainability and Regenerative Business; Social Exclusion and Precariousness; Models of Social Innovation and Digitalization; NGO Management.
Another characteristic of GRIIS is that it uses qualitative methodologies (e.g. ethnography, case study, grounded theory, discourse analysis).
