Handbook of Sustainable Innovation

Edited by Frank Boons, Professor of Innovation and Sustainability and Andrew McMeekin, Professor of Innovation, University of Manchester and Sustainable Consumption Institute, UK
The Handbook of Sustainable Innovation maps the multiple lineages of research and understanding that constitute academic work on how technological change relates to sustainable practices of production and consumption. Leading academics contribute by mapping the general evolution of this academic field, our understanding of sustainable innovation at the firm, user, and systems level, the governance of sustainable innovation, and the methodological approaches used. The Handbook explores the distinctiveness of sustainable innovation and concludes with suggestions for generating future research avenues that exploit the current diversity of work while seeking increased systemic insight.

This unique and original book will have a broad appeal among scholars, researchers and advanced students interested in innovation, environmental studies and technological transitions.
‘What is sustainable innovation? This comprehensive Handbook answers this question by outlining and organizing the scope and breadth of this academic field. It is an invaluable resource for both new scholars finding their way into the field and seasoned scholars taking stock of its work and contributions. And for society, the output of this research work will illuminate the critical role that technology development plays in our sustainability solutions.’
