SMS-Sustainable Management System

A study commissioned by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT)

Project management and implementation: Univ.-Doz. Dr. Dietmar Kanatschnig (ÖIN), Georg Greutter, MBA (PE-International), DI Harald Reisinger, DI Dr. Alfred Strigl (plenum)

The project aims at establishing corporate management systems, including corresponding control systems, that meet the requirements of “sustainable development” (especially taking into account social and ecological dimensions). Therefore central management systems like for example the sustainability program, the system of financial control and the sustainability report will be developed into a consistent „Sustainable Management System“ (SMS).

The SMS model will be implemented into business practice in cooperation with different business partners. For the first time in Austria, a web-based software (SoFi) for sustainable management and –report will be tested and customized.
