Sustainable Entrepreneurship

General Overview

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, addresses the most pressing challenges of our time, such as climate change and COVID-19, social injustice, human rights, and economic growth. Incorporating the sustainable development goals (SDGs) into society’s fabric is essential for just and equitable sustainable development for all. The SDGs purpose is to stimulate everyone, from governments, businesses, NGOs, citizens, and other stakeholders, to accelerate actions that benefit the people and the planet, by fostering actions and partnerships at all levels, so no one is left behind. And since MSMEs are the foundation of our economies and society, they are at the critical leading edge of the UN’s sustainable development initiative.

Sustainable entrepreneurs are our best hope to achieve the SDGs, working within a network of like-minded visionaries, innovators, and troubleshooters. This Special Issue of the Journal of the International Council for Small Business (JICSB) aims to document cases of sustainable entrepreneurship across the world and to accelerate knowledge about what works and could be amplified.
