No 2018-02, Research Contributions to Organizational Sociology and Innovation Studies, SOI Discussion Papers from University of Stuttgart, Institute for Social Sciences, Department of Organizational Sociology and Innovation Studies

Abstract: Sustainable innovations can help to find ways of addressing major challenges such as global warming and resource consumption. This article begins by clarifying the specific inconsistencies within the concept, before introducing the research on sustainability-oriented innovation processes. This research is geared in part towards sustainability innovations in organisations and in part towards overarching processes of societal transformation for sustainable development. The article concludes by discussing strategies for promoting sustainable innovation and drawing consequences for the sustainable rebuilding of infrastructure.
