Description

 

Today’s world faces significant challenges. There are numerous ways that businesses are responding to these challenges. Some organizations are tolerant to deteriorating economic, environmental, and social conditions and are sailing through the decline by adapting to limitations. Other organizations respond to the need to make choices between what is apt for the environment and society or doing what is best for the economy. However, there are more innovative, proactive responses, including ones that champion business as a force for positive societal change.

 Sustainable businesses help address society’s concerns by providing profit-making opportunities for business owners. It is in large part about changing business practices. Successful sustainable businesses are focused on the creation of new products and practices that address or mitigate environmental, economical and social concerns in new ways. Success in implementation of sustainable business practices relies largely on entrepreneurship and innovation.

The concepts of sustainable business, energy and development are three of the most important focal points that our country is attempting to address through post-Millennium Development Goals initiative. In view to these three areas, the important question is how to address our needs for growth, in particular those of the developing countries like ours, to meet present and future needs, given the limitations imposed by the condition of business, energy, development and social organization on our ability.

Today's dynamic business environment asks for continuous innovation to stay competitive. The objective of the conference is to advance the theories and practices of Business Sustainability, promotion and implementation of practices in companies towards sustainability across all organisational levels, from strategic management to operational levels, for every company’s function and in every type of business, to bridge the gaps between abstract and real worlds, between academia and companies, between theory and practice, , and to bring people in the centre, as a critical success factor towards business sustainability.

With the theme of Innovative Management Practices for Sustainable Business Models”, INC 2020 raises important questions regarding the future of sustainability of businesses in Economic, Social, and Environmental terms.

 In particular, we welcome articles that include current thinking and developments by practitioners and academicians, combining theoretical foundations on markets and/or marketing and corporate responsibility with practical insights that help managers in decision-making processes. Therefore, INC 2019 offers a platform for scholarly and applied conversations among a wide variety of stakeholders concerned with the continual challenge of advancing the sustainable business, energy and development agenda: people, planet, and growth.
