Reframing the Game

A special issue of the Building Sustainable Legacies journal

Guest edited by Mike Townsend

Building Sustainable Legacies, BSL’s quarterly journal in Business Sustainability, saw a special issue published in April 2015. This special issue, guest edited by Mike Townsend (Earthshine), looks at what a Sustainable Economy could look like, and brings together key voices in business and academia that show us how to accelerate towards this tipping point by exploring the role that business in society, responsible education, leadership techniques and legal reform will have in shaping the new sustainable economy.

Including contributions from Paul Polman, Dr. Katrin Muff, Professor Beate Sjåfjell and Gabriele Zedlmayer, this outstanding collection proposes leading insights and innovative solutions to the challenge of creating new economies that work for people and the planet.
