Main areas

The main areas of research are:

  • Environmental communication and sustainability (with a focus on sustainability reporting)
  • Business Intelligence and Data Intelligence

The topic of the PhD with the title "Document Engineering as an Approach for Inter-company Sustainability Reporting" is located in these subject areas and consists of the focal points:

  • Sustainability reporting
  • document engineering
  • process modelling
  • enterprise networks
  • corporate communication
  • environmental informations systems
  • environmental protection publicity
  • network publicity

The aim of the PhD was to develop an approach for an inter-organisational sustainability reporting, a suitable and uniform document structure template and its implementation in an exchange format.

The resulting documents are available for download here as XBRL documents for inter-organisational sustainability reporting (the acronym INBE stands for inter-organisational sustainability reporting and is used as namespace for the Taxomonie extension).
