Chapter 9: Sustainability management from a responsible management perspective

Markus Beckmann, Stefan Schaltegger and Nancy E. Landrum


Taking the viewpoint of responsible management, this chapter develops a conceptual perspective on sustainability management and discusses its research implications. It shows that sustainability management (a) addresses a specific form of responsibility (to manage the long-term creation of value and the reduction of disvalue in the ecological, social, and economic dimension in an integrative manner),( b) responds to the expectations and needs of specific others (natural and social environments on the micro-, meso-, and macro-level), (c) refers to specific responsibility objects (life-cycle, value chain, and consumption-related effects), (d) uses specific tools and (e) unfolds as the interplay of specific responsibility roles (explicit and implicit sustainability managers as well as sustainable managers) that can display agency for sustainability. Topics for further research are discussed and scholars are invited to explore the relationship between sustainable and responsible management.
