Creative destruction: innovation for sustainability transition

Norbert Bol

During the United Nations conference on climate change in Paris earlier this month, nearly 200 countries agreed to limit global warming to 1,5C above pre-industrial levels and getting to net zero emissions between 2050 and 2100. Achieving these goals are probably even more difficult if we do not change our behaviour. Kivimaa & Kern (2016) show the results of policy mixes that aim for creative destruction in the UK and Finland. Research Policy , 45 (1), 205-217.

Norbert Bol

However, educating consumers is often insuf fi cient to change consumption habits. However when policy makers or companies are trying to raise the knowledge-level of consumers, it appears not to be effective.

The sustainable innovation paradox

Norbert Bol

Also from a government side we see more policy efforts to stimulate sustainable technologies. However on the other side new technologies are hindered by regulatory policies designed to protect public safety. Managing means: to keep all stakeholders at the same speed.

The future of sustainability

Norbert Bol

Thinking about the new year I am wondering what the future of sustainability looks like, since almost all countries in the world have agreed in Paris in December to become more sustainable, companies have a sustainability policy and socially responsible investing has become mainstream in the financial markets. The future of sustainability probably lies in another direction, where sustainability promotes change in line with its sustainable logic.

Green jobs for a green economy

To make this change we can, as consumers, contribute by buying more green products and services.

To my opinion, Mintzberg’s work was a refreshing change to the world of organization design that until then has been largely influenced by Taylor’s Scientific Management Approach and Henry Ford’s efficiency-based adaptation of that. In fact, building blocks as ‘middle management’ might only still exist on paper today. Let me show you how the focus of organization design has changed over the years: Scholar.
