Special Issue "Leveraging Culture to Cultivate Green Innovation in Organisations and Institutional Fields" in Industry & Innovation

31st October 2022
With this special issue, we aim to create a forum for research on how organizations cope with the challenges of forms of innovation that reduce impact on the natural environment, i.e., green innovation, from a cultural perspective. Especially, we want to shed new light on the role of culture and its various elements – such as institutional logics, institutional infrastructure, sensemaking, framing, collective imaginaries, and discursive elements such as stories or figures of speech – in the development, promotion, implementation, and diffusion of green innovation. Overall, we envision the special issue to generate new insights and offer guidance on how culture can help organizations to tackle important questions such as:
- How to design and change markets for green innovation?
- How to bring green innovation to the market?
- How to attract resources required to make green innovation happen?
- How to build coalitions to promote green innovation?
These are not exhaustive topics – we invite empirical and conceptual submissions on issues that fall within the scope of this special issue. The full CfP is available here: https://think.taylorandfrancis.com/special_issues/culture-green-innovation-organisations/
Please get in touch any time for questions and ideas that you would like to discuss!

Special Issue Call for Organization Studies: Overcoming Shortcomings of Measuring Organizational Sustainability: Assessing and Driving Societal Impact
Frank Wijen, Shon Hiatt, Rodolphe Durand, Judith Walls, and Juliane Reinecke
Deadline: 30 September 2022
The rapidly grown interest in socially and environmentally sustainable practices has proliferated numerous types of schemes to measure organizational performance and steer organizational behavior towards more societally beneficial outcomes. At the same time, these tools seem to be far from achieving their intended goals. While sustainability schemes such as standards and ratings surely have an important role to play, their widespread use raises numerous questions as to what exactly they cover and measure, how consistent they are, and how they guide organizational behavior in terms of societal impact. At present, these schemes assess and induce organizations imperfectly in terms of sustainable practices. This Special Issue pushes the debate on turning firms and other (e.g., public, nongovernmental) organizations into agents of positive societal impact by inviting contributions that advance our insights into how and when sustainability schemes will effectively capture and drive socially and environmentally beneficial organizational behavior and outcomes. We invite phenomenon-driven contributions from different disciplines, using a variety of conceptual lenses and empirical methods, and focusing on multiple levels of analysis.
