Unlocking Change for Transforming Business and Technology

Sustainable Frontiers throws down the gauntlet to business to step up to be the catalyst for a sustainable future. It presents eight keys to unlocking transformational change through leadership, enterprise, innovation, transparency, engagement, responsibility, integration and future-fitness. Far from being another tame review of corporate social responsibility and sustainable business initiatives, the book dispels the myths of sustainability and challenges us to let go of old systems that are failing to deliver economic, social and environmental transformation. It gets to the heart of why the sustainability and CSR movements have failed in the past and offers a new view of how sustainable business practices can shape-shift to make a genuine difference inside and outside organisations.

This book gathers together experiences from across the globe and shows the reader what can be achieved with the right vision and leadership. Expect to be challenged, engaged and inspired to join the revolution on the sustainable frontier.

  • An arresting account of why and where sustainability has and hasn’t worked
  • A collection of short compelling chapters that provide new insights into long-standing questions
  • From one of the foremost thinkers in corporate responsibility

Praise for Sustainable Frontiers

 “I enthusiastically recommend this book for newcomers or veterans in the field of sustainability, CSR, stakeholder management and related and competing frameworks.”

Archie B. Carroll, Scherer Professor of Management Emeritus, Terry College of Business, University of Georgia, and co-author of Business and Society: Ethics, Sustainability and Stakeholder Management, 9th Edition, and Corporate Responsibility: The American Experience, 2012.


“So if you want to sort the wheat from the chaff, and disentangle the gobbledegook from the ideas and practice that really matter, then Wayne Visser is your man – and ‘Sustainable Frontiers’ provides a great way of accessing important insights into a world that is going to be more and more critical to future business success.”

Jonathon Porritt, Founder Director, Forum for the Future

‘”Sustainable Frontiers, true to its title, is an out-of-the-box, transformative, holistic vision of “future earth” that takes one well beyond current concerns about sustainability.  Listen up, students, professors, corporate leaders!”

William C. Frederick Professor Emeritus, Katz Graduate School of Business, University of Pittsburgh and author of Natural Corporate Management
