“Sustainability, Ethics and Entrepreneurship”


Environmental issues, poverty, inequality, corruption and social discontent are intricately linked with business activity, and as such, they cannot be disentangled or addressed in isolation. The needs to understand the Earth and its limited resources, security for humankind and justice for society mean that the demand for social science knowledge is increasing. The fact that sustainability and ethics are intertwined with the concepts of business and organizations (including NGOs) is no longer new. Indeed, ethical choices are critical to any business activity and thus influence how startups, small firms, medium enterprises, and large, multinational corporations-whether those are for profit or not- influence the sustainability of the environment and society. We actually suggest that sustainability, ethics, and entrepreneurship triangulate and give meaning to every ecological consideration, social value, and economic opportunity. The goal of the symposium, then, is to advance knowledge about the meaning and intersection of sustainability, ethics, and entrepreneurship.
