Siinviidatud vabalevis olevas tekstis on mitu, siinse lehe aspektist, olulist komponenti: kestlik areng, organisatsioon ja õppimine. Tekst võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele kestlikust arengust, organisatsioonidest ja õppimisest huvitatutest.


In 2019, while two thirds of the United Nations Global Compact signatories had confirmed their commitment to sustainability at the CEO level, only half claimed to have successfully implemented sustainability practices into their operations (United Nations Global Compact & Accenture Strategy, 2019).

Kestlik areng siinse teksti tähenduses:

Addressing demands for environmental sustainability (ES), which can be defined as “the situation in which vital environmental functions are safeguarded for future generations” (Hueting, 2010, p. 526), is increasingly necessary in order to compete in global markets.

Autorid fokuseerivad:

How organizations internalize demands for ES, by looking at factors that promote (hinder) a substantive internalization of ES among organizational actors who do the “real work” (Cook & Brown, 1999, p. 387). From a conceptual perspective, we direct our attention to the seminal work on organizational learning, the 4Is (intuiting, interpreting, integrating, and institutionalizing) framework, by Crossan et al. (1999) to guide our interview protocol and study the internalization of ES, thus avoiding decoupling. We then look at lifecycle management (LCM) as a proxy for the global and inclusive perspective of the ES concept (Buxel et al., 2015; Nilsson-Lindén et al., 2019).

Järgneva tsitaadi sisu võib “avatud looduses” leida suures koguses:

Several studies based on neo-institutional theory have shown that organizations may symbolically adopt environmental practices simply to satisfy institutional demands and receive external legitimacy while continuing to operate as usual (e.g., Boiral et al., 2017; Boxenbaum & Jonsson, 2008; Bromley & Powell, 2012; Greenwood et al., 2011; Kassinis & Panayiotou, 2018; Scherer & Palazzo, 2011; Testa et al., 2018a).

Vihje kokkuvõttest:

Furthermore, as shown in our results, the presence of enablers allows learning processes to unfold from one phase to the next, until LCM is embraced at the organizational level and among business partners.
