Building Sustainable Legacies, BSL’s quarterly journal in Business Sustainability, saw a special issue published in April 2015. This special issue, guest edited by Mike Townsend (Earthshine Solutions), looks at what a Sustainable Economy could look like, and brings together key voices in business and academia that show us how to accelerate towards this tipping point by exploring the role that business in society, responsible education, leadership techniques and legal reform will have in shaping the new sustainable economy.
Including contributions from Paul Polman, Dr. Katrin Muff, Beate Sjafjell and Gabriele Zedlmayer, this outstanding collection proposes leading insights and innovative solutions to the challenge of creating new economies that work for people and the planet.
Yolanda Kakabadse, President of WWF International, commented on the journal: “This special edition of the BSL Journal is an enlightening and fascinating read. Changing mindsets is key to moving toward a sustainable global economy. Our mindset is our worldview that makes some things obvious and others hidden from our questioning and reasoning. Good research and analysis – both scientific and behavioural – are so important to raising our awareness and deepening our understanding of the world.”
