Research on ‘business models for sustainability’ (BMfS) is developing very dynamically. But many scholars and also practitioners deal and struggle with the question how to define a BMfS.

ESCP Business School’s Paris campus is looking for a candidate with a genuine interest and track record in Sustainability Management who will actively contribute to teaching and research in this area.

After a very successful 5th International Conference on New Business Models, we are happy to announce that NBM Conferences will continue in 2021 and beyond.

Submit your manuscripts to our online special issue workshop on “The Organizational Dynamics of Business Models for Sustainability”. Deadline for workshop submissions is 13th November 2020.

We invite scholars to draw on insights from organization theory to examine how and under what conditions the development and implementation of BMfS are related to organizational change, and to what effect.

Innovation research increasingly attends to the role that values and normative orientations play for innovation. We invite empirical and theoretical studies as well as insights about research and innovation facilitation methods for values-based innovation.

The “Christian Doppler Laboratory for Sustainable Product Management enabling a Circular Economy” offers two PhD positions that might be of interest for young researchers. 

The study reveals sustainable business model innovation barriers and drivers, by drawing on 53 semi-structured interviews with top, senior and mid-level managers at AkzoNobel, Interface, Johnson & Johnson, Pearson, Philips, and Unilever, and 59 initiatives.

We are inviting you to join our workshops on “Sustainable Business Design with Business Model Patterns” at this year’s ISPIM and GRONEN conferences.

The 5th International Conference on New Business Models, July 1&2 2020, will be turned into a fully digitally organized event with online plenary sessions, digital conference rooms, a digital hangout space etc.

This study proposes the sustainable business model pilot canvas, a tool that organizations can use to plan and execute small-scale pilots, turning sustainable business model ideas defined “on paper” into concrete action and tangible impact.
