Only a few years ago, in the business and academic literature, the word “sustainability” referred mainly to the environment. Today the meaning of the expression encompass a host of issues beyond resource utilization, including fairness, transparency, and equity. Business models committed only to shareholder value maximization are becoming more and more unsustainable because the value creation processes are increasingly based on intangible assets, shared between the firm and other relevant stakeholders, whose legitimate claims have to be fulfilled in order to preserve relevant competitive advantages.
