Corporations and Sustainability: A South Asian Perspective is a compilation of contributions from leading academics and practitioners that provides an overview of the key challenges and opportunities related to sustainability in South Asia.
The last two decades have seen rapid and often dramatic changes in the institutional, economic and ecological contexts faced by firms operating in South Asian economies. South Asia is increasingly seen both as a driver of global economic growth as well as a barrier to sustainable development. The most significant driver of this change has been the economic liberalization attempts of national governments resulting in easier and faster flows of information, labour and capital between these economies and the rest of the world. Consequently, global, environmental and social concerns are increasingly driving governmental and corporate decision-making processes for firms operating in South Asia. In responding to these emerging challenges, firms have begun to re-evaluate and redesign their strategies, structures and processes as well as incorporate sustainability principles into their strategies.
This book thus forms an important perspective for researchers as well as students of masters' level courses on business and environment. The book is particularly useful those trying to understand the key sustainability challenges in the South Asian context as well some of the solutions emerging in the critical areas of heavy industry as well as service sectors.
