Stimulating Learning And Innovation To Confront Sustainability Issues


Confronting environmental sustainability issues requires firms to both enhance traditional operational practices and introduce new, innovative ones. There are opportunities to enter emergent markets for products and services supporting the sustainability agenda. It is anticipated that these circumstances will more frequently involve innovative firms in collaborations with other organizations and stakeholders. In 2009 three Dutch, one Australian and one Swedish University conceived a project to work with about twenty industry partners to facilitate learning about collaborative environmental innovation practices that may be new to these partners. In this paper we consider a number of tools to be used in stimulating learning about such practices and embedding that learning in ongoing enterprise activities.
