Spirituality and Business – Implications for Sustainability

Laszlo Zsolnai gave a presentation on “Spirituality and Business – Implications for Sustainability” in the faculty workshop of the Institute of Management, Vienna University of Economics on October 9, 2012. He argued that achieving sustainability actors should consider the whole persons and the whole systems, give priority to intrinsic motivation, orient themselves toward the common good, and measure success in multi-dimensional, holistic way. Zsolnai also empahisized that materialistic value orientation destroys material values, including nature. To save material values we need to follow a non-materialistic (i.e. spiritual) path.
