Focusing on society’s transitions towards sustainability from a business perspective, this inspiring book encourages radical development in solving major sustainability challenges. It addresses the key question: what needs to radically change in businesses to thrive while also respecting the natural environment and contributing to building social foundations?

A diverse collection of contributing authors present conceptualizations of radicality, and pave the way for the operationalization of radical perspectives in sustainability transitions. Chapters focus on three central institutional dimensions – cognitive, normative, and regulatory – and examine key theories such as corporate degrowth, stewardship and spirituality in business. They emphasize the importance of accelerating the most-needed sustainability developments to resolve challenges at the intersection of business, society, and ecology.

Scholars and students focusing on corporate social responsibility, environmental management, innovation and business studies will find this book to be highly beneficial. It is also crucial for business leaders hoping to anticipate changes related to sustainability transitions.
Critical Acclaim
‘Given our failure to meet contemporary sustainability challenges, let alone future ones, it is high time to think more radically. This wide ranging book offers welcome stimulation on everything from degrowth, to spirituality, to managerless organisations and unseating dominant theoretical perspectives. This is recommended reading for stimulating beyond the ‘same old’ thinking.’
