Sustainability in a Society of Organisations
2015 (English)In: Journal of Organisational Transformation and Social Change, ISSN 1477-9633, Vol. 12, no 1, 5-21 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article makes a distinction between global, organisational, and individual sustainability. It argues that sustainability relates to ethics, and that individuals and organisations are expected to follow different ethical standards. When, in a society of organisations, individuals adopt an organisational kind of ethics, global sustainability is at risk. The article discusses some effects of an organising — rather than an organisational — perspective. It is suggested that global sustainability depends on how individuals define their true interests.
