Sustainable Entrepreneurship

Sustainable Entrepreneurship stands for a business driven concept of sustainability which focusses on increasing both social as well as business value - so called Shared Value.

 

This book shows why and how this unique concept has the potential to become the most recognised strategic management approach in our times. It aims to point out the opportunities that arise from putting sustainable entrepreneurship into practice. At the same time, this book is a wake-up call for all those companies and decision makers who underestimated Sustainable Entrepreneurship before or who are simply not aware of its greater dimension. Well structured chapters from different academic and business perspectives clearly outline how Sustainable Entrepreneurship contributes to solving the world's most challenging problems, such as Climate Change, Finance Crisis and Political Uncertainty, as well as to ensuring business success. The book provides a framework of orientation where the journey might go: What can a successful concept of SE look like? What are the key drivers for its realisation? What is the role of business in shaping the future of our society?

 

The book also presents best practices and provides unique learnings as well as business insights from the international Sustainable Entrepreneurship Award (www.se-award.org). The Sustainable Entrepreneurship Award (short SEA) is an award for companies today who are thinking about tomorrow by making sustainable business practices an integral part of their corporate culture. Companies that receive the SEA are being recognised for the vision they have shown in combining economic and sustainable responsibility.

Wie aus einem Tiroler Bauernbub Österreichs ranghöchster EU- Politiker wurde: Seine Lehr- und Leidenszeit in einem katholischen Internat, seine Arbeit an der Universität und in der Landwirtschaftskammer, seine Erfahrungen als Minister und EU- Kommissar. Wie ihn Thomas Klestil als Bundeskanzler gewinnen wollte, wie er Franz Vranitzky und Wolfgang Schüssel erlebte, warum er den europäischen Agrarmarkt grundlegend reformiert hat und welche Perspektiven er für die Europäische Union sieht - und für sich selbst.

 

 

 

Europa - Der Staat, den keiner will

Dieses Buch von Franz Fischler und Christian Ortner ist mit einem Vorwort von Präsident Jacques Santer im Ecowin-Verlag erschienen.

 

"Dieses Buch wird meines Erachtens ein wichtiger Beitrag zu der jetzigen Nachdenkpause der EU sein. Es wäre zu wünschen, dass die heutigen Entscheidungsträger sich an verschiedenen Antworten von Franz Fischler orientieren könnten."

(Jacques Santer, EU-Kommissionspräsident a.D.)
