Increasing concerns about the state of our planet have catapulted sustainability issues from the corporate backburner to the boardroom. Consequently, corporate sustainability initiatives have flourished, driven by a desire to minimize costs and risks, maximize opportunities and enhance reputation.
What does sustainability mean in the business context? Why has it captured so much attention from academics as well as corporate leaders? How can businesses manage emerging sustainability challenges without compromising their core advantages, and transform themselves into 'sustainable enterprises'?
