With corporate sustainability becoming a strategic issue for companies, there also comes the demand for management education to adapt to this new reality.

This textbook provides a theoretically sound, highly relevant, introduction to the topic of socially and environmentally responsible business. Drawing from the classic background theories such as business ethics, sustainable development, and corporate social responsibility, those concepts are applied to the most current practices. The book covers an international perspective, featuring cases from countries all around the world, has a strong theoretical basis, and fully integrates the topics of sustainability, ethics, and responsibility.

It includes a wide variety of tools for change at individual, company, and systemic levels. Published with the The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), a United Nations supported initiative, it is an essential resource for business students at all levels.

* Crucial textbook with a global perspective for business and MBA courses
* Perfect for self-directed study, with a comprehensive introduction to theory and practice
* Online supplementary materials accompany the book
