Abstract

Sustainability issues such as energy security, air quality, climate change, and poverty are introducing greater levels of complexity into strategic decision-making and often have far-reaching implications for companies in today's competitive environment. Building on Appreciative Inquiry, this paper discusses a new model for sustainable value creation, based on the growing business opportunity to do well by doing good.
