Call for Papers: Special Issue on „Multinationals, Sustainability and Social Change“

International Journal of Business Environment – Inderscience Publishers.  Special Issue on: „Multinationals, Sustainability and Social Change“ Recent years have seen growing recognition that multinational corporations (MNCs) are resourceful actors that can play a crucial role for sustainable development and social change (Salciuviene et al. 2009). However, while these roles are widely recognised, relevant theories and debates have often remained unconnected.


Call for Papers: Sustainability Summit 2016

Sustainability Summit 2016 – October 12 – 13, University of Freiburg, Germany With its three thematic symposia on sustainable materials, energy systems and resilience engineering the Sustainability Summit has a decided focus on questions of sustainability engineering; this year, however, it will also have a more social science-oriented theme cutting across the three symposia, i.e. a focus on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). Responsible Research and Innovation stands for a new set of guiding principles and approaches that intend to make research more responsive to societal actors and their values, needs and expectations. For each of the three symposia we invite abstracts that address RRI in the sense of ethical, legal and social aspects of research and innovation. Conference Topics: 1. Sustainable Materials The optimization of materials, e.g. with regard to maximum lifetime, reusability or recycling, is an essential precondition for sustainable systems engineering helping to reduce the impact of the system on the environment. 2. Energy Systems The transformation of the energy system is one of the central needs for a sustainable future. This …


Call for Papers: „Advances in Sustainable Entrepreneurship”

Call for Papers: Special Issue of Administrative Sciences “Advances in Sustainable Entrepreneurship” Guest Editor: Jacob Hörisch, Alanus University Sustainable Entrepreneurship has the potential to contribute to the solution of environmental and social problems through entrepreneurial activity. Thereby, it aims at societal transitions towards more sustainability. Despite the enormous potential of sustainable entrepreneurship, the academic debate in this field has just begun to evolve, and, consequently, more research to advance the con-cept of sustainable entrepreneurship is needed. With reference to Dean and McMullen (2007, p. 58), sustainable entrepreneurship can be defined as an innovative “process of discovering, evaluating, and exploiting economic opportunities that are present in market failures which detract from sustainability“. It is not distinct from phenomena such as social and environmental entrepreneurship, but offers a sustainability perspective on these con-cepts (Thompson et al., 2011) and is therefore not restricted to profit-oriented organizations.

Call for Papers: Special Issue of Organization & Environment (O&E)

Call for Papers: Special Issue of Organization & Environment (O&E) – Business Models for Sustainability: Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Transformation Background Sustainability management deals with social, environmental and economic issues in an integrated manner to transform organizations in a way that they contribute to a sustainable development of the economy and society within the limits of the ecosystem. Leaders, managers and entrepreneurs are challenged to contribute to sustainable development on the individual, organizational and societal level. Obviously, common approaches of technological, process, and product innovation, often un­derstood as “technological fix”, are insufficient to create the required transformation of organizations, industries and societies towards sustainability. Scholars and practitioners are therefore increasingly exploring if and how modified and completely new business models can help maintain or even increase economic prosperity by either radically reducing negative or creating positive external effects for the natural environment and society – then called Business Models for Sustainability (BMfS). This pers­pective does not only cover existing organizations and how their business models are transformed, but also entirely new business models pioneered by (sustainable) …
