Completed projects

Sustainable business strategies
It is necessary to develop sustainable business strategies in order to secure our future. But research on business strategies and sustainability issues are neglected. We need more empirical and practical research to help business become sustainable.

Consumer logistics
In the project the researchers are going to study how consumers bring home their everyday purchases from the store. The research team consists of researchers from the Centre for Consumer Science, the Center for Retailing and researchers from France and Britain.In this project, it is the consumers who walk, cycle or use public transportation which are in focus. How do consumers transport their purchases? What different types of bags, shopping bags and trolleys are used?

Changes in the Swedish pharmacy market
The Swedish pharmacy market is changing and actors other than the state-owned Apoteket AB have obtained the right to retail sales of drugs to the consumer. We study how the market is reconstructed, how pharmacists act as institutional entrepreneurs and how the practice is reshaped.

Flexible retail industry
The trend is that an increasing proportion of staff in the retail industry is temporary employed, for example through employment agencies. Perhaps it is not only the retail industry’s requirements that influence how they recruit and staff but also the share of temporary workers has an impact on how work is organized in turn.

Restructuring in the retail industry
The retail trade is undergoing profound structural changes. Over the past four years, more than 20 000 employees in the sector were given notice. It means that there is a great need for efficient restructuring measures for retailers.

Tracing sustainable supply chains
Codes of conduct have been a hot topic for a while, but the issue is debatable in working life as well as in research. Trading firms use codes of conduct in order to improve the conditions for those working with suppliers in various producing countries.
