Corporate accountability and sustainable development

Corporate accountability and sustainable development This volume is part of the series Ecological Economics and Human Well-being that offers outstanding recent work in the transdisciplinary field of ecological economics, whose focus is the study of the relationship between economic activity and environmental sustainability. Recent decades have witnessed a profound transformation in regulatory regimes that shape the social and environmental performance of business. As neoliberal thinking and policies took effect in the 1980s, attention focused on corporate self-regulation and voluntary initiatives associated with 'corporate social responsibility' (CSR). This book explores a range of ideas, initiatives, and alternative approaches that go beyond standard notions of CSR.
