Book description

Sustainable businesses create economic and social value while simultaneously protecting the natural environment for future generations. This examination of environmental sustainability through the lens of the family business identifies factors that help family and non-family organizations address the dilemma of balancing short-term productivity, efficiency and profitability objectives, with innovating for long-term sustainable value creation. Exploring the case of the wine industry - an industry characterized by a variety of governance systems - Sanjay and Pramodita Sharma develop fresh insights into influences and drivers for proactive environmental strategies to address major global sustainability challenges. By doing so, the authors are able to demonstrate that family firms with a focus on trans-generational continuity of business, long temporal orientation, shared vision, faster decision-making processes, and the goal of preserving socio-emotional wealth are more likely to make patient long-term investments for innovations in products, services, processes and business models to address environmental sustainability challenges.

Reviews

'In this new book, two global thought leaders in their respective fields, Sanjay Sharna in sustainable business and Pramodita Sharma in family business, join forces to provide a unique, comprehensive and impressively creative examination into the role that family firms play in developing sustainable business practices. Focusing on the wine industry, the authors generate meaningful insights regarding the importance of patient capital that are both theoretically rigorous and practically relevant. This book is a must-read, not only for those of us with an interest in the family businesses and the wine industry, but for all who care about business being more sustainable in the future.'
