BiographyDr Sigrun M. Wagner is the Head of Department for Strategy, International Business and Entrepreneurship in the School of Business and Management at Royal Holloway, University of London, UK. She is an award-winning Senior Lecturer in International Business and Sustainability, and a Senior Fellow of the UK’s Higher Education Academy. Her first textbook Business and Environmental Sustainability: Foundations, Challenges and Corporate Functions was published by Routledge in 2020, and she is co-authoring a book on Sustainable Engineering with colleagues from Royal Holloway, Leeds and Suffolk. Her interest in business and sustainability stems from her different experiences of environmental perspectives when living, working and studying in the UK, Germany and Norway as well as a high school year in the United States as a seventeen-year old. She gained her PhD from Loughborough University, which was on corporate political activities by the automotive industry regarding environmental regulations in the European Union – research that involved fieldwork in Brussels with a number of EU institutions, NGOs, companies and industry bodies. At Royal Holloway, she was instrumental in the introduction of a sustainability and corporate responsibility pathway for business and management students on the undergraduate BSc programmes.
