SMEs on their journey towards corporate sustainability management: exploring enabling factors for adoption and implementation

Nova SBE Leadership for Impact Knowledge Center began a series of Master Thesis Showcase. This one was developed by Armelle Duvieusart, advised by our Assistant Professor Ricardo Zózimo.

This paper explores the journey of SMEs aiming to integrate corporate sustainability management into their businesses. Through empirical, qualitative methods, the real, lived experience of SMEs was studied to uncover which features of management and reporting tools could help SMEs overcome hurdles on their path to adopting and implementing strategic sustainability management. The insights that emerge serve to inform the development of more tailored and relevant tools that enable organisations to turn intention into action through strategic support and peer-driven communities of best practices.
