Kapitel i bok, 2014
This chapter derives our current understandings of the concept of Sustainability. Its history dates back to the Sixties and is today largely affected by concerns about climate change that have centered around the Un Climate Change Conferences and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The aim of this chapter is to introduce you to the concept of Sustainability and give it sufficient background for you to subsequently explore the promises of sustainable business development. Sustainability has only recently been clearly linked to business development and innovation.
