This book is the outcome of scholarly work based on the deliberations and engagements at the third Multinational Enterprises and Sustainable Development international conference (MESD’12), held at New Delhi in December 2012, jointly organized by the Shaheed Bhaghat Singh Evening College (SBSEC), University of Delhi; ICN Business School, France; the Centre Européen de Recherche en Economie Financière et Gestion des Entreprises (CEREFIGE), Université de Lorraine, France; and the Georgia Tech Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), of the Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA, a national centre of excellence. The conference brought together more than 300 academicians, researchers, practitioners, consultants and experts from 12 countries who are actively engaged on the frontiers of managing and analysing the fastchanging dynamics of multinational enterprises (MNEs), addressing sustainable development. MNEs are perceived to be key actors of change, devising new strategies, practices and models in their operations towards sustainable development and thus helping to create a liveable society, enhancing quality of life and accelerating environmentally conscious economic development.
