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.

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.
