Abstrakt

Research at the intersection of corporate sustainability and business ethics has grown over the past years. As associate editors we have seen many such papers pass our desks that unfortunately have failed to make a convincing contribution to the field and that eventually have ended up being rejected. In this paper we highlight two areas of concern. Firstly, many papers conflate corporate sustainability with other constructs such as CSR or environmental management. Secondly, many papers purporting to connect corporate sustainability with business ethics actually fail to do so. We outline several exemplary research areas that we feel would be promising fields of enquiry and call for more normative research in relation to constructs such as multiple objective functions, carrying capacity, and generational sustainability.
