Working with the world leader Tetra Pak for a sustainable future


EBS Universität and Tetra Pak® enter into research and teaching partnership

EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht has entered into a partnership with Tetra Pak, the world leader in sustainable food processing and packaging solutions. The cooperation is led by the Chair of Sustainability Management and its holder Prof Dr Julia Hartmann and provides a platform for innovation, learning and interaction at the interface between business and science. The aim is to promote research and development in areas of growing global importance for sustainable business and production.


Aim and vision of the collaboration

Tetra Pak will become one of a select group of partners to join the Chair of Sustainability Management. This will create an expert think tank that brings together research, teaching, education, business and politics. It will address future challenges in areas such as sustainable supply chains, connected food systems, the modern circular economy and investments in a future-oriented energy transition. The Sustainability Summit is the flagship annual event. It brings together the leading minds from business and education at the EBS campus in Rheingau.

Tetra Pak's strong focus on sustainability fits perfectly with the values and objectives of EBS Universität. The inclusion of the global player in the circle of partners promotes interdisciplinary exchange between science and business. “Close collaboration between business and academia is essential for the success of the global sustainable transformation and I am delighted that Tetra Pak is laying the foundation for this at EBS," said Prof Hartmann.


Content of the collaboration

The partnership provides broad access to research, teaching, leading business players and policymakers, as well as an intensive exchange at the interfaces. Workshops to present current research results and discuss new projects, master classes with students, involvement in teaching and the annual Sustainability Summit are planned several times a year.

Stephan Karl, Managing Director Mid Europe at Tetra Pak, sees great potential in the cooperation: “We are looking forward to working with the students. The partnership with EBS University is a great opportunity to initiate new projects that support our vision of providing safe and sustainable food around the world.”
