Abstract:The concept of Product-Service Systems (PSS) as a means to realize sustainable business models is a vividly discussed topic in management literature. Most approaches to evaluate the impacts of PSS focus on the economic as well as the ecological dimension of sustainability; whereas social implications are hardly analyzed. However; a more comprehensive evaluation of potential effects of all three dimensions of sustainability is indispensable to foster the diffusion of PSS. Therefore; this article offers an integrative assessment of the sustainability impacts of PSS based on expert interviews in the B2B as well as B2C sector.
