Second and revised edition! CSR and Sustainable Business by CSR researchers Susanne Sweet, Tommy Borglund, Emma Sjöström and Lin Lerpold
CSR AND SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS introduces many perspectives on corporate social responsibility and sustainable business, as well as how the different perspectives are connected. The discussion is based on real examples and cases. The development within CSR has been moving quickly, both in politics and in business. Phenomena, like social entrepreneurism, sustainable business strategies and new financial models relating to sustainability, have grown stronger. This book gives an overview of the most important concepts and theories, as well as offering a depth of historical perspectives and connections to business ethics. Theoretical aspects are combined with examples from a large number of companies and organizations. The text is divided into three parts. The first part provides an overview of the topic, its history and growth. The second part covers practices at companies and business operations. In the third part, the focus is on control and strategies for responsible, sustainable business. This first edition in English features some of the most influential experts in the field. 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.
