A growing movement of European activists and scientists are engaged in the theme surrounding the buzzword Postwachstum or degrowth. Companies and their operational strategies, were basically disregarded in the actual degrowth discussion and a research gap in this area was detected. The aim of this thesis is therefore to bring these companies to the forefront, so that they can be included in this discussion. The following questions should be answered: Which theoretical starting points are present in the degrowth discussion for companies? Which aspects can be found in the management literature from different authors and what implications will they have? For this purpose, I begin by presenting the degrowth theory, the next chapter shows term trends and possible definitions, describes general principles and institutionalization. The following chapters focus more on the managerial dimension. The analyzed literature addresses the possible roles of companies, shows that companies are a part of a social-ecological transformation and presents modified strategies and business models. It can be deduced, that knowledge for a future management of growth-neutral companies must be extended and included in the literature. Only in this way, will alternative growth and development concepts be spread and thus reach a higher acceptance. In addition, future management literature should present the risks of excessive company growth as well as growth constraints and should teach qualitative targets. In closing, this implies that companies, which dont follow a growth strategy, have to be represented more openly and detach themselves from possible prejudice as an underperformer.
