This book describes the sustainable development journey of 15 business families committed to using their enterprises as a force of societal good. In turn, each family reaps benefits of high economic returns, while contributing to society and environment. The youngest family firm is in its 20s, while there are others over 100 years of age. Size, industry, locations vary. But all these business families share a deep shared commitment towards sustainable development, control over strategic decision-making in their firms and trans-generational continuity intentions. Family values embed their enterprises with a strong sense of purpose to achieve their chosen sustainable development goals. Professionalized systems and processes foster the development of capabilities, and partnerships with a variety of stakeholders ensure the simultaneous achievement of social, environmental and profitability goals.

Another example we would like to bring in is that of the food industry and how it has also become dominated by the mass production paradigm, especially in the West, and as such is highly unsustainable. Mass produced or industrialised food systems are interestingly often labelled as ‘conventional’ systems - as opposed to ‘alternative’ food systems which are discussed later in this section (Marsden et al., 2000; Sonnino and Marsden, 2006). Food is an interesting space to consider as humans will always need food to survive, yet what we are seeing nowadays is a deeply flawed production and consumption food system where food scarcity and poverty co-exist with over-production and over-consumption, which is in turn responsible for growing obesity and associated diseases. So how did we get to this?

Directors' Duties and Corporate Anti-Corruption Compliance

The 'Good Steward' in US and UK Law and Practice

Investigating anti-bribery, corporate and securities law and guidance, this engaging book explores systemic expectations of directors, executive officers and compliance personnel in public and private companies.
