Attitude toward Ethics, Environment and Profitability in Business – Results of an International Study (Part I. – Focus on the Environmental Issues)

“Combining Ethics, Environment and Profitability in Business (CEEP)” is an intensive program (IP) within the frame of Erasmus Program – with the participation of 5 higher education institutions: Centria University of Applied Science (Finland), Hochschule Niederrhein and Westfälische Hochschule (Germany), Poznan University of Technology (Poland) and Obuda University (Hungary). The aim of this 3-year project was to train students' entrepreneurial competences by showing basic dependencies between business, society, state and ecology in a multicultural environment. One important outcome of the IP is a questionnaire which measured the attitude of students toward the main topics of the IP. In 2014 the sample of students from the 5 higher education institutions was asked and the responses were analyzed by teachers of the IP. In this article we would like to focus mainly on the environmental issues highlighted in the questionnaire – but as the main target of the IP was to handle these topics in their interrelatedness, some ethical and profitability questions are also included.
