ISHARE - Impact of the Sharing Economy in Germany
The project aims at assessing the contribution of the sharing economy for sustainable management in Germany. To address this matter, (1) the sharing economy organizations and their business models are identified and systematized; (2) indicators of the functionality and the economic, environmental and social impacts of different types of business models are developed; (3) contributions to sustainable business practices of sharing economy organizations (as well as those with competing business models) are determined with the help of empirical studies; (4) recommendations for action are derived on how the contribution of individual business models of the sharing economy can be increased through appropriate approaches to disseminate effective models.
