About this book

The role of stakeholders is integral to corporate sustainability as society increasingly demands that corporations play a role in achieving environmental objectives in addition to building shareholder wealth.

In this, the first book to gather cutting-edge research on the interactions between stakeholders and organizations within the context of corporate sustainability, the contributors provide a diversity of perspectives from North America, Europe, and Oceania. The authors examine the role stakeholders play in influencing regulations on global issues such as climate change and national and regional problems. Stakeholder selection of companies and the sustainability issues they choose to target are explored, as are the ways in which organizations motivate them to participate in the evolution of holistic sustainable solutions. The interactions between stakeholder pressures, organizational characteristics and corporate sustainability practices are also covered.

Finally, the volume provides an examination of the dynamic structure of organizational fields in the European automobile industry in order to analyze the factors that foster or hinder ecological modernization.Academics, environmental consultants, sustainability managers, NGOs, and international development institutions will find this timely volume of great value.
