The search for sustainability has recognized the importance of balancing competing priorities of environmental protection, economic growth and social equity. However, academics have noticed that this “triple bottom line approach” is far from being the dominant business model for companies.
Classification schemas, lists, and frameworks have been proposed in the literature as roadmaps for firms to identify potential sustainable innovation opportunities. However, definitions of sustainable innovation have traditionally been limited to products and to its environmental dimension. Considering sustainable innovation as the result of a learning process that changes the company generating knowledge for the modification or introduction of new products / services / processes in the market that are sustainable in economic, environmental and social terms, potential areas for academic research emerge.
The studies of this Special Issue are expected to address:
- Sustainable innovation construct operationalizations,
- External and internal drivers of sustainable innovation, moderating factors,
- Management of sustainable innovation,
- Sustainable innovation orientation,
- Performance outcomes of sustainable innovation: value co-creation,
- Marketing aspects of sustainable innovation,
- Consumer aspects of sustainable innovation,
- Sustainable innovation ecosystems,
- Market-oriented sustainable innovations
- Economic, social, and environmental aspects in sustainable innovation activities,
- Sustainable innovation in public and nonprofit organizations,
- Education for sustainable innovation,
- Sectorial applications of sustainable innovation.
