Special issue on Knowledge Management and Sustainability

25 Apr 2023

Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) is now mainstream in corporate strategic plans, reporting, communications materials, as well as in academia. Through the United Nations seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) the broader concept of sustainability is also fully established in the socio-political environment, and many organizations actively subscribe to accomplishing one or more of the SDGs. This special issue of EJKM is interested in the following questions:

  • Do we have the language and processes to guide KM for sustainability practice?
  • Do we have the tools for sense-making of the systemic and often paradoxical aspects of sustainability?
  • How can KM better contribute to defining the objectives of ESG and the SDGs? 
  • How can KM enable organizational learning that enables practical solutions for the complexities of sustainability?
  • How can we support the development of innovative KM frameworks that support the paradigm shift that sustainability requires?
  • How can KM support organizational, national, and even global sustainability? 

This special issue is also open to other KM/Sustainability/ESG topics not listed above.

This call for papers is open until 1 November 2023
