Sustainability is increasingly becoming prevalent in both practice and scholarship. Yet, the majority of studies are focused on macro-level issues such as proving the business case, with little knowledge about how sustainability is implemented organization-wide. In this article, the mechanisms through which employees engage in sustainability, as well as the resulting impact, are discussed. A model for creating meaningfulness at and in work is put forward along with a discussion of implications for our current management models in the workplace.

  • The Journal of Corporate Citizenship focuses explicitly on integrating theory about corporate citizenship with management practice. This means that the journal provides a forum in which the tensions and practical realities of making corporate citizenship real are addressed in a reader-friendly, yet conceptually and empirically rigorous format. The Journal of Corporate Citizenship aims to publish the best ideas integrating the theory and practice of corporate citizenship in a format that is readable, accessible, engaging, interesting and useful for readers in business, consultancy, government, NGOs and academia. This peer-reviewed journal encourages practical, theoretically sound, and (when relevant) empirically rigorous manuscripts that address real-world implications of corporate citizenship in global and local contexts.
