    Putting entrepreneurship in corporate change agency: A typology of social intrapreneurs.Anne-Cathrin Darcis, Rüdiger Hahn & Elisa Alt - 2024 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 33 (2):170-183.
    Social intrapreneurs can help corporations to address grand challenges and create hybrid value—that is simultaneous commercial and social value—by identifying and exploring entrepreneurial opportunities that address social or environmental issues. However, we still know little about how individuals assume social intrapreneurial roles in corporations. Based on a qualitative study of social intrapreneurs and their supporters, we identify variations in social intrapreneurial profiles along two dimensions: the role of the social intrapreneur in the entrepreneurial process (idea initiator versus idea explorer), and (...)

    Family firm entrepreneurship and sustainability initiatives: Women as corporate change agents.Ada Domańska, Remedios Hernández-Linares, Robert Zajkowski & Beata Żukowska - 2024 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 33 (2):217-240.
    Family businesses are often seen as key players in efforts to increase sustainability due to their transgenerational focus. Researchers have reported that companies strengthen their commitment to sustainability as they consolidate their entrepreneurial commitment, but the existing knowledge about drivers of family firms' sustainability choices is limited. This study sought to fill related research gaps by exploring the relationships between five entrepreneurial orientation (EO) components—risk taking, innovativeness, proactiveness, competitive aggressiveness and autonomy—and family businesses' sustainability initiatives. These companies comprise a unique (...)

    Consultants as discreet corporate change agents for sustainability: Transforming organizations from the outside‐in.Jean-Pascal Gond, Luc Brès & Szilvia Mosonyi - 2024 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 33 (2):157-169.
    Despite their central role in the construction and development of the market for virtues as well as in the design, implementation, and evaluation of corporate sustainability strategies and governmental sustainability policies, sustainability consultants remain at best “hidden” corporate change agents. In this paper, we bring sustainability consultants back to the fore to account for how these actors discreetly regulate and shape contemporary sustainability transformations from the outside-in. We do so first by unpacking various roles of consultants as engineers, market builders, (...)

    Corporate sustainability professionals: The landscape of sustainability job positions.Barbara Lespinasse-Camargo, João Henrique Paulino Pires Eustachio, Denise Bonifacio, Nayele Macini & Adriana Cristina Ferreira Caldana - 2024 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 33 (2):184-200.
    Sustainable development requires several stakeholders, including companies, to take action. For this, employees need to have their positions and sustainability roles defined so they can carry out activities. In turn, activities need alignment with corporate policies and strategy. However, the literature lacks discussion about job specifications and which activities relate to sustainability. Therefore, this article aims to explore the panorama of positions and professional activities of corporate sustainability professionals. To achieve this goal, we conducted a bibliometric assessment of terms related (...)

    In search of change: Organizational role expectancies of CSR professionals.Irene Pollach, Christa Thomsen & Anne Ellerup Nielsen - 2024 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 33 (2):201-216.
    Based on an integrative discourse methodology, this study examines the organizational role expectancies of CSR professionals as articulated in CSR job advertisements, focusing specifically on what organizations expect CSR professionals to change. Four types of change were identified and organized into a matrix based on the inside or outside stimuli for these changes and their expected effects, which can materialize inside or outside the organization. Specifically, the four types of change include organizational development (aligning practices with organizational values), compliance (aligning (...)

    Corporate change agents for sustainability: Transforming organizations from the inside out.S. Schaltegger, V. Girschik, H. Trittin-Ulbrich, I. Weissbrod & T. Daudigeos - 2024 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 33 (2):145-156.
    Sustainable development requires sustainability transformations of (so far unsustainable) companies. Sustainability transformations of companies do not happen by themselves but are the result of individuals and groups who purposefully act for sustainability. It is individual managers and employees within an organization—so-called “change agents for sustainability”—who play a vital role in advancing corporate sustainability, as they are responsible for starting initiatives, making decisions, and implementing measures. Recent contributions have started to address the transformational role of individual sustainability professionals and employees shaping (...)
