Influential book ’CSR and Sustainable Business’ now in its second English edition

Misum affiliate Emma Sjöström is a contributing author to the acclaimed book ‘CSR and Sustainable Business’, now published in its second English edition. Co-authored with SSE peers and industry partners, the book introduces various perspectives on corporate social responsibility, sustainable business, and how the different perspectives are connected.

The development within CSR has moved quickly, both in relation to politics and in business. Phenomena, such as social entrepreneurism, sustainable business strategies and new financial models relating to sustainability, have grown even stronger.  This book provides an overview of the most important concepts and theories, as well as offering a depth of historical perspectives and connections to business ethics. In conjunction, it explores case study examples from a large number of companies and organizations. 

The text is divided into three parts. The first provides an overview of the history and growth of CSR and sustainable business. The second covers practices at companies and business operations, and the third explores control and strategies for responsible, sustainable business. 

This English edition features leading experts in the field of business sustainability. The original Swedish edition published in 2012 has been used extensively in leading universities and management training courses in both Sweden and Finland for years.
