Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference abstract in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Recognizing the attention in academia and industry dedicated to the value created by firms beyond profit, this paper analyzes the themes that constitute the extra-economic value creation for Corporate Sustainability literature. With a systematic literature review methodology and a thematic analysis, I illustrate the common themes in articles discussing social, ethical, environmental, collaborative, shared, and sustainable value creation. Usually, each value concept is reviewed singularly in the literature. In this paper, I instead analyze the most discussed topics across articles and highlight the primary connections, differences, and similarities among value categories. This review sets out that the extra-economic value creation concept, as an umbrella for a number of phenomena, is discussed around three main categories: antecedents, means, and outcomes of extra-economic value creation. Then, I delineate how future research can advance the literature by filling the gaps and providing new perspectives. I conclude by highlighting the main findings and limitations of the study.
