Jouni Korhonen, Ph.D
Utacas fellow 2004-2005

My work focuses on industrial ecology, cleaner production, corporate environmental management and corporate social responsibility.
My main interest within these fields is to bridge the engineering and natural sciences aspects of sustainable development work to organisational, management and policy studies and to social sciences. For example, material and energy flow tools such as life cycle assessment or substance flow analysis should be considered also in terms of their social and economic implications, not only the technical or ecological. Similarly, these tools need to be compared to other tools to enable their strategic use in planning, policy and management.

The key challenge in my UTACAS project is to take the concepts of industrial ecology and material and energy flow studies and apply them in the model of Strategic Sustainable Development that has been published jointly by ten scientists that have pioneered in some of the most commonly used concepts and tools in sustainable development research and practice led by Professor Karl-Henrik Robèrt, The Natural Step Foundation (TNS) and Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden.
