Media – the uncharted terrain of sustainable business
Media is an unique industry, as no other industry serves such a foundational role as one of the cornerstones of democratic societies. However, the commercial media of today operate with a clear business logic, and can be assessed from the perspective of sustainable business.

It's time to look at media, their responsibilities as businesses and their role in society with a holistic approach, writes Researcher Laura Olkkonen from LUT School of Business and Management.
