Corporate Governance: The International journal of business in society is pleased to invite papers for a special issue on “Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Innovation”.

Overview of the Theme

Sustainable Development is generally defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” and has been discussed as one of main topics in “Business and Society” over the last decade. Social Entrepreneur or Corporate Entrepreneur is expected to tackle social or environmental challenges for suitable development and take the sustainability initiatives in local or global community. Sustainable/social innovation creates new social values through businesses tackling social and environmental issues. In order to create a new innovation, we need to build and promote collaboration among social business, big business, NGOs, local people, government, and academia, and to make an institutional environment to enhance new businesses.
