This second edition of the TRACY workshop focuses on the role of sustainable business model, social entrepreneurship, and B Corps in achieving zero-carbon neutrality, disentangling the factors (e.g., institutional, at the industry and/or firm-level) leading firms to meet the net-zero goal.
The workshop focuses on emergent issues related to sustainable development: a development that meets the needs of current generations without compromising those of the future generations. To respond to global changes, it is necessary to embrace a forward-looking approach, oriented to avoid or mitigate negative impacts and to adapt quickly to ongoing changes.
The contents of the workshop relate, but are not limited, to these themes:
- Sustainability transitions in the energy sector
- Inclusive and sustainable global value chain
- Technological change, innovation networks, and sustainable business models
- Clusters’ transition towards sustainability
- Culture and creative industries in sustainability transitions
- The role of sustainable certifications, and certified companies, such as the B Corps, to stimulate local/regional/national transformation towards sustainability
- Place-based sustainable innovation trajectories and policy actions
- The effects of green strategy adoption on competitive benefits
- Carbon neutrality and circular economy
