As industry leaders look for new and improved ways to implement sustainable strategies into their day-to-day operations, they create a need for educated professionals to steer them in the direction of sustainable practices that make sense for their business models and goals. Sustainable business in practice brings together forward-thinking professionals who are creating real business value by placing sustainability at the heart of their corporate strategy.
This creates a number of contemporary issues. For example, how to turn sustainability into a competitive advantage and value creation tool; how market leaders have successfully integrated sustainability into their corporate strategy; how to build a more effective business case for both short- and long-term sustainability initiatives; how to identify innovative ways to engage your internal and external stakeholders; and how to address sustainable development bringing traditional and non-traditional value to companies.
This special issue aims to address these issues. Theoretical and empirical papers based on the areas outlines below are welcome.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:
- Organisational behaviour, leadership and human resources management
- Innovation, operations and supply chain management
- Marketing management
- Financial management and accounting
- Strategic management, entrepreneurship and contemporary issues
- Green business
