To what extent and how can capitalist structures and processes foster, encourage, or facilitate business environmental responsibility? This question is a vigorously debated issue with a long history, particularly given the increasing influence of, and research on, sustainable investment. Sustainable investment is used as a generic term to describe investment strategies centered on long-term environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) criteria; thus seeking to contribute to sustainable development by integrating investors' financial objectives with restrictions on ecological and social issues or concerns (Eurosif, 2011; Hoffmann, Scherhorn, & Busch, 2004; Juravle & lewis, 2009; WEF, 2011).
To view the many research questions that this special issue may (but is not limited to) address, please contact Lisa Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Paper deadline: October 15, 2012
Manuscripts must be submitted electronically to Timo Busch (tobusch@ethz@ch). The submission should consist of two separate Word documents:
1. a manuscript without title page and without author identification information of any kind and containing an abstract (about 100-159 words) and keywords (3/5)
2. a title page with full author contact information
