Sustainable Entrepreneurship

Publikation: Beiträge in SammelwerkenLexikonbeiträgeForschung


Sustainable entrepreneurship describes the nexus between sustainable development and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs aspire to create viable market solutions and intend to act as change agents who realize and exploit opportunities for sustainable development. As such, this chapter outlines three common conceptual views to approach the intersection of economic, social, and environmental sustainability. The core idea that unites all three perspectives is that entrepreneurs’ activities in pursuit of financial gain must not adversely affect the natural and social environments in which they operate. Therefore, we present research findings of sustainable entrepreneurship in action and emphasize the role of community and multiple objectives as important process features in contributing towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
