- GLOBAL VALUE (www.global-value.eu), an EU-funded research project, aims at filling in this gap and creating a toolkit for measuring business impacts on global sustainable development. The GLOBAL VALUE project will take centre stage at a multi-stakeholder symposium taking place at the Vienna University of Economics and Business.Two parallel developments motivate the symposium on the role of business in development. On the one hand, the international community calls on business to take on a more proactive role in furthering global development goals, e.g. in terms of financial contributions, accountability, compliance and transparency of operations in developing countries. On the other hand, the debate on measuring impacts of business operations in developing countries has entered the boardrooms of many companies.
