New Textbook on "Sustainability Management" out now!

Dear NBS community,

my new textbook on sustainability management is out (“Sustainability Management – Concepts, Instruments, and Stakeholders from a Global Perspective”)! It comes with praise from reputed sustainability actors such as Andrew Crane, Robert Eccles, Dirk Matten, Jonatan Pinkse, Minna Halme, and Mike Russo.

In 20 chapters, I provide extensive knowledge on sustainability management including

  • concepts of sustainable development and sustainability management,
  • instruments and tools used in essential management domains such as strategy, marketing, accounting, supply chain management, or innovation management,
  • and an extensive stakeholder perspective to illuminate the influence of various actors such as employees, customers, investors, or (non-)governmental actors.

Features on “faces of sustainability”, “sustainability in business”, “sustainability in society,” and sustainability in research" provide lively insights into practical issues and illustrate numerous best practice as well as worst practice examples. The book comes with an extensive range of online resources for instructors (slides etc.) and students via (with info on how to get a digital inspection copy). It should be applicable for courses on the undergraduate, graduate, and MBA level - and of course for practitioners who would like to get a holistic overview of the different facets of sustainability management.

The book is available as paperback and ebook (via Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble etc.). More info on the book website:

Thank you for your consideration.

Kind regards
