Esta dissertação tem o propósito de buscar um maior entendimento dos conceitos acerca do desenvolvimento sustentável aplicado à gestão empresarial. Trata-se de um tema bastante contemporâneo, emergente e que vem sendo discutido por diferentes grupos, tais como acadêmicos, jornalistas, biólogos, artistas, sociólogos, gestores, entre outros. Elaborou-se uma revisão bibliográfica sobre o tema cuja literatura é vasta e multidisciplinar; a sustentabilidade aplicada à gestão empresarial ainda é um conceito em construção. O Método SIGMA foi apresentado como referencial teórico de um método de gestão estratégica socioambiental. A revisão da literatura orientou a realização de uma pesquisa qualitativa com os objetivos de (i) explorar as práticas de gestão estratégica de uma empresa brasileira do setor de papel e celulose e observar se tais práticas incorporam as dimensões sociais e ambientais às econômico-financeiras (triple bottom line) e (ii) observar se existe aderência das práticas observadas na empresa àquelas propostas pelo método conceitual SIGMA. Como conclusão, observou-se que existe aderência (mais no conteúdo que na forma) das práticas de gestão da empresa X às propostas pelo Método SIGMA; porém...

Os temas desenvolvimento sustentável e sustentabilidade vem norteando inúmeras discussões e debates, tanto no meio acadêmico como empresarial, em função da importância reconhecida pela sociedade da abordagem de questões ambientais, sociais e econômicas ou, em muitos casos, avaliações que vão além destas dimensões. O setor agropecuário, incluindo a suinocultura, por fazer uso de recursos naturais, coloca o foco das pesquisas do setor na dimensão ambiental, mas uma análise integrada e interrelacionada de todas as dimensões mostra-se necessária. A necessidade de criação de uma metodologia própria, acessível e composta por indicadores de desempenho específicos, que integrem as três dimensões propostas pelo Triple Bottom Line e baseada na percepção dos produtores para avaliação da suinocultura de terminação, desencadeou a motivação para a presente pesquisa. Construíram-se indicadores de desempenho abrangendo as dimensões social, ambiental e econômica, a fim de adaptar a metodologia M.A.I.S. (Método de Avaliação de Indicadores de sustentabilidade organizacional) para a suinocultura de terminação, em sistemas integrados de produção. Visando validar a ferramenta construída, esta metodologia foi avaliada por meio de uma pesquisa survey junto a 31 propriedades familiares do município de Aratiba (RS)...

To study the seismicity associated to the Ibero-Maghrebian region, the Real Instituto y Observatorio de la Armada in San Fernando (ROA) has installed, since 1898, different types of seismological stations. At present two networks are in operation: Long Period station and Short Period net (ROA) and Western Mediterranean Broad Band (WM) net (in collaboration among several institutions). The installation of a network of ocean-bottom seismographs (FOMAR) is underway. The Ibero- Maghrebian region corresponds to the western part of the Eurasia-Africa plate boundary and is of great seismological and tectonic interest. It extends from 12oW to 3oE, comprising Southern Iberia and northern Africa, including the Gulf of Cadiz and Alboran Sea (figure 1). Seismicity is characterized by the occurrence of moderate and large magnitude earthquakes at shallow depth, intermediate depth earthquakes (30

Visual records, radio interviews and onboard observations of the fishing activities during a 58 days scientific expedition to Trindade Island and the Martin Vaz Archipelago were obtained from February to April 2007. The regular activities of four different fisheries were observed: pelagic longline, bottom line, trolling and handline. These fisheries caused mortality of at least seven species with some level threat, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature list. The establishment of specific restriction norms for hook-and-line activities around the oceanic islands was seen as an alternative for the conservation of the ichthyofauna of the region. Satellite monitoring to track the fishery vessels could be established through the national program as another legal mean to diminish fishing the impact.

Com a evolução do próprio conceito de desenvolvimento, mediante o fortalecimento do paradigma da sustentabilidade, torna-se necessária uma evolução das discussões em torno dos arranjos produtivos locais (APLs) que incorpore ponderações acerca de tais dimensões. Dessa forma, este estudo tem como objetivo geral analisar a ocorrência de práticas de desenvolvimento sustentável, com base no modelo triple bottom line, em um arranjo produtivo local. Para tanto, escolheu-se como campo empírico de estudo um APL de móveis localizado no município de Marco, no Estado do Ceará. Sua escolha para este trabalho se deveu tanto às características desse tipo de atividade, que, por depender da extração e utilização de recursos naturais, principalmente a madeira, apresenta grande relação com questões da dimensão ambiental da sustentabilidade, quanto ao reconhecimento do forte desempenho econômico do APL de Marco, que fez com que a cidade fosse reconhecida como um dos maiores polos moveleiros do Norte e Nordeste do país. Procurou-se identificar demonstrações econômicas (profit), sociais (people) e ambientais (planet), bem como verificar a ocorrência de sinergia na relação arranjo produtivo e desenvolvimento sustentável.

The financial experience of an actual medical practice was used to develop a spreadsheet model of the business of medicine. The model is designed to provide reasonably accurate predictions of the financial outcome of business decisions affecting the practice. It has been used very successfully to teach practice management to senior residents in Family Practice training at the University of Minnesota. Students are placed in the role of a managing partner presented with a financially ailing practice, and asked to suggest business decisions which might salvage the situation. The model instantly and convincingly presents the impact of such decisions on the "bottom line". The entertaining and interactive format have made this one of the most popular offerings in our practice management curriculum.

Triple–bottom-line outcomes from resource management and conservation, where conservation goals and equity in social outcomes are maximized while overall costs are minimized, remain a highly sought-after ideal. However, despite widespread recognition of the importance that equitable distribution of benefits or costs across society can play in conservation success, little formal theory exists for how to explicitly incorporate equity into conservation planning and prioritization. Here, we develop that theory and implement it for three very different case studies in California (United States), Raja Ampat (Indonesia), and the wider Coral Triangle region (Southeast Asia). We show that equity tends to trade off nonlinearly with the potential to achieve conservation objectives, such that similar conservation outcomes can be possible with greater equity, to a point. However, these case studies also produce a range of trade-off typologies between equity and conservation, depending on how one defines and measures social equity, including direct (linear) and no trade-off. Important gaps remain in our understanding, most notably how equity influences probability of conservation success, in turn affecting the actual ability to achieve conservation objectives. Results here provide an important foundation for moving the science and practice of conservation planning—and broader spatial planning in general—toward more consistently achieving efficient...

In the packaged food industry, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an informal requirement for which firms account through sustainability reporting. CSR behaviors are often reported and analyzed using the Triple Bottom Line (3BL) framework, which categorizes them as affecting people, planet, or profit. 3BL is useful in determining which of these categories is most elaborated upon by the firm, but has a limited scope and many documented criticisms. This paper aims to address the aforementioned insufficiencies by augmenting the 3BL framework with two important attributes of CSR practices: (1) the presence of change in core firm behavior of the firm itself or of others in the supply chain, and (2) whether the behavior qualifies as being outside of the firm’s normal business practice or is something that they might have done anyway. We qualitatively analyze CSR behaviors described in sustainability reports and interviews from major players in the packaged food industry and categorize them using these attributes as a supplement to 3BL. This enables us to separate the behaviors from their framing and analyze them more critically. Our results demonstrate how the visible CSR efforts of a firm can be misleading at first glance. Using only 3BL...

Pursuit of the triple bottom line of economic, community and ecological sustainability has increased the complexity of fishery management; fisheries assessments require new types of data and analysis to guide science-based policy in addition to traditional biological information and modeling. We introduce the Fishery Performance Indicators (FPIs), a broadly applicable and flexible tool for assessing performance in individual fisheries, and for establishing cross-sectional links between enabling conditions, management strategies and triple bottom line outcomes. Conceptually separating measures of performance, the FPIs use 68 individual outcome metrics—coded on a 1 to 5 scale based on expert assessment to facilitate application to data poor fisheries and sectors—that can be partitioned into sector-based or triple-bottom-line sustainability-based interpretative indicators. Variation among outcomes is explained with 54 similarly structured metrics of inputs, management approaches and enabling conditions. Using 61 initial fishery case studies drawn from industrial and developing countries around the world, we demonstrate the inferential importance of tracking economic and community outcomes, in addition to resource status.

The post-WWII period has seen a radical change in the growth patterns and composition of American cities, as a decentralized form of real estate development, conventional development, has become the dominant real estate development paradigm. As conventional development has become pervasive it has contributed to a host of negative economic, social, and environmental impacts. Growing dissatisfaction and concern over these negative impacts has given rise to development models that seek to accommodate the demand for new built space through alternative spatial forms, development locations, development practices, and development products. Collectively called "alterative development", these development models seek to minimize or eliminate potential negative social and environmental externalities caused by real estate development. While alternative development has gained some traction in the real estate development industry, it still faces significant barriers. Chief among these barriers is the lack of access to reasonably priced debt and equity capital. As the availability of financial capital is one of the key factors determining what gets built, when, and where, the lack of access to capital for alternative development has profound effects on the economic...

This dissertation comprised of three essays provides justification for the need to pursue research on multinationality and performance with a more fine-grained approach. Essay one is a conceptual response to an article written by Jean-Francois Hennart in 2011 which questions the need and approach toward future research in this domain. I argue that internalization theory does not render multinationality and performance research meaningless and identify key areas where methodological enhancements can be made to strengthen our research findings with regard to Hennart’s call for more content validity. Essay two responds to the need for more-fine grained research on the consequences of multinationality by introducing non-traditional measures of performance such as social and environmental performance and adopting a more theoretically relevant construct of regionalization to capture international diversification levels of the firm. Using data from the world’s largest 600 firms (based on sales) derived from Bloomberg and the Directory of Corporate Affiliates; I employ general estimating equation analysis to account for the auto-correlated nature of the panel data alongside multivariate regression techniques. Results indicate that regionalization has a positive relationship with economic performance while it has a negative relationship with environmental and social performance outcomes...

Most irrigation in Australia was instigated with regional socio-economic development as a primary goal. The irrigation schemes were developed with grand visions of settling the interior and providing farming opportunity to soldiers returning from world wars. These visions have largely been realised with evidence from the Murrumbidgee and Murray basins of significant inland populations associated with the irrigated districts and an annual revenue of $3.1 billion associated with an investment into irrigation infrastructure valued at about $10 billion. This economic development in the Murrumbidgee and Murray basins brought about by this irrigation uses about 8600 Giga-litres of water (2000/01 season), which is about 52% of the total annual runoff into the system. This level of water extraction has led to ecosystem problems associated with highly controlled river flows and a disconnection of the river from the floodplain ecosystems. Public and Government concern has resulted in actions to recover and return water for targeted environmental flows. Irrigation development induces considerable environmental change, but the expectation has been in the past that the economic and social benefits would be greater than the environmental costs. However...

Retirement villages are regarded as a viable accommodation option for the ever increasing ageing population in Australia. This paper aims to identify sustainability features and practices adopted in retirement villages and associated benefits to improve the life quality of older people. A case study of an existing retirement village 10 kms from Brisbane CBD was conducted involving a series of interviews with the village managers and residents together with documents relating to the village’s operations and activities. The environmentally friendly features that were incorporated into the development mainly include green design for the site and floor plan and waste management in daily operation. More importantly, a variety of facilities are provided to strengthen the social engagement and interactions among the residents. Additionally, different daily services are provided to assist independent living and improve the health conditions of residents. Also, the relatively low vacancy rate in this village indicates that these sustainability features offer good value of money for the residents. The paper provides a first look at sustainable retirement villages in terms of triple bottom line sustainability with emphasis on social aspects...

A presente tese reflete sobre os temas do desenvolvimento sustentável, da sustentabilidade corporativa, da responsabilidade social corporativa e das dimensões do Triple Bottom Line. O principal objetivo do nosso trabalho é contribuir para o conhecimento das relações que se estabelecem nas interseções entre a dimensão económica, social e ambiental da sustentabilidade corporativa, aqui designadas de relações híbridas. Neste sentido, desenvolveu-se um enquadramento teórico que fundamenta o modelo proposto, designado por Hybrid Bottom Line. De acordo com este enquadramento procurou-se conceber uma metodologia que permitisse analisar como é que estas relações de interseção entre economia-ambiente e economia-social se verificam e de que forma os seus resultados podem beneficiar a compreensão, avaliação e melhorias no entendimento da sustentabilidade corporativa, bem como possibilitar uma análise dirigida a fatores recombinantes específicos. Em complemento, foi desenvolvida uma proposta que permite posicionar o esforço desenvolvido pela empresa no âmbito da sustentabilidade e desta forma tipificar as suas ações. Nesta tese a abordagem empírica recaiu na análise dos relatórios de sustentabilidade publicados pelas empresas e baseados nas diretivas de relato propostas pelo Global Reporting Initiative. A amostra para o estudo abrangeu um total de 85 empresas de diferentes dimensões de 36 sectores económicos e representando 36 países de 5 continentes. A análise dos resultados foi feita utilizando diversos métodos de análise de dados (de frequência e de conteúdo) e análises estatísticas (análise de contingência...

Resourceful Communities is a program of The Conservation Fund, a national nonprofit that promotes conservation and sustainable economic development. In 2001, Resourceful Communities established the Creating New Economies Fund (CNEF), a program to support triple bottom line community development work in North Carolina. The triple bottom line approach integrates sustainable economic development, environmental stewardship, and social justice to create solutions to challenges facing communities in North Carolina. Each year, CNEF awards small grants to partner organizations to develop and implement community-driven triple bottom line projects. Resourceful Communities has experienced difficulty in communicating the aggregate impacts of the partner projects that they support, which may be a result of inadequate reporting and evaluation tools, and is also confounded by the wide variety of projects they support. Resourceful Communities has requested that our team conduct a thorough evaluation of CNEF that will be used to clearly communicate their impacts, as well as provide recommendations to guide CNEF in improving the program and its reporting processes. We evaluated the impacts of the most recent three years of projects (2009-2011) supported by CNEF using a mixed-method approach...

Mining companies sponsor a range of non-core, corporate social responsibility projects to adhere to social and labour plans and environmental management prerequisites that form part of a mining licence application. Some companies go above and beyond such projects, sponsoring initiatives that generate renewable energy through solar power, wind energy, natural gas, etc. The challenge for these companies is to choose between a variety of projects to ensure maximum value, especially in times when the economic climate might be less favourable for such projects. The focus of this research was to analyse the concept of sustainability as it exists today, and to apply that to the triple bottom line accounting method in an attempt to quantify the sustainability of a project. Research was done on the methane burn-off project at Sibanye Gold's Beatrix Mine to establish how such projects are planned and financed, and what impact they have on the triple bottom line of a company. The financial bottom line is, by definition, one that executives understand. This paper also proposes a quantitative method for defining the social and environmental bottom lines as well. By considering the financial, social, and environmental values, the study attempts to determine a monetary value for a sustainable renewable energy project. This monetary value can be compared to similar values obtained for other sustainable renewable energy projects under consideration. The research suggests that monetary value alone is not enough to base a sustainable decision on...
