  • Innovation and paths to social-ecological sustainability

    • Authors: Demissie Damite Degato
      Pages: 3 - 33
      Abstract: The traditional approach to innovation assessment has mainly focused on the economic outcomes and failed to capture the ecological and social dimensions of sustainability. By giving high attention to the role of specific kind of innovation (technological innovation), there is little empirical work on whether combining different kinds of innovation leads to progress in social-ecological sustainability in developing countries. The sustainability orientation in the assessment of innovation performance becomes increasingly important for achieve successful transformation towards sustainability. The research question of this study is under what condition or combination of conditions the intervention for innovation reconciles the trade-offs between socioeconomic and ecological performance and thus improve progress towards sustainability in poor countries. Combing concepts and methods from literature on strategic corporate social responsibility (CSR), value chain upgrading, sustainability, and technological capability, this study identifies different mechanisms and conditions for building innovation capacity and then empirically evaluates the relationship between the degree of innovation capacity and the progress towards social-ecological sustainability by taking four cases from Ethiopia. The data for this study is collected using key informant interviews, focus group discussion, and biodiversity and innovation scorecard questionnaire. Mixed methods combing comprehensive fuzzy evaluation, biodiversity scorecard and qualitative comparative analysis are used for analysis. The study found that combing value chain innovation and green governance innovation either with technological upgrading or innovation platform learning are sufficient conditions for achieving social-ecological sustainability. We also found that innovation in green governance and in value chain are necessary conditions for sustainability. By developing and applying fuzzy comprehensive evaluation model for measuring innovation capacity and fuzzy set qualitative comparative analysis for identifying necessary and sufficient conditions for sustainability, this study made an important methodological contribution to existing literature.

  • Policy stringency and (eco)-innovation performance: a cross country

    • Authors: Tim van Kemenade, Aurora A.C. Teixeira
      Pages: 34 - 60
      Abstract: Policymakers have an important role in enabling eco-innovation. To assess the effectivity of these interventions, it is necessary to characterize policies, namely the level of policy stringency. The present study contributes to extant empirical literature by performing a cross-country assessment of the impact of policy stringency on the outcomes (rather than the inputs) of the eco-innovation process. Contrasting with extant evidence, results fail to evidence the relevance of policy stringency for eco-innovation performance. Notwithstanding, policy stringency emerged indirectly as a potential critical determinant. Indeed, the possibility to save costs is often driven by policy instruments that punish pollution intensive firms.

  • Sustainable practices through green guerrilla marketing – an
           innovative approach

    • Authors: Harshita Gupta, Saumya Singh
      Pages: 61 - 78
      Abstract: Sustainability is the need of the hour. Organizations that align the interests of all their stakeholders – customers, investors and employees are considered to act for sustainable development. But some of the organizations compromise to this fact. They are rather busy exploiting the resources. Bluffing the customers for making quick profits has become a prevalent notion. Amidst all these selfish motives, they tend to forget about the repercussions which we and our planet may endure as a whole in near future. There are many evidences when responsible companies have proved themselves performing better in the long run.
      Green Guerrilla Marketing is an innovative concept, trying to figure out various ways to successfully market the products and at the same time acting ethically and socially responsible towards the sustainable development. It revolves around being conscious about 3Ps which are People, Profits and Planet. Guerrilla Marketing is an unconventional marketing strategy that focuses on attracting huge customer base with least amount of cost involved. Roots of Guerrilla Marketing can be traced to guerrilla warfare that was off-center warfare technique using unusual tactics by the armed civilians during Vietnam War in the 1960s. Since then this marketing concept has attracted many business houses.
      So far, Guerrilla Marketing was considered only as a creative tool for promoting ones’ product and services but now it can be seen as a responsible tool as well, which works toward a better society at large under the broad head of Green Guerrilla Marketing. Therefore, the paper is a pioneer attempt in understanding the potential of Green Guerrilla Marketing in the light of both sustainability and innovation at the same time. Also, it discusses various guerrilla techniques to market the products ethically without compromising on the profits. In the end, the paper also evaluates the examples to examine the concept.

  • Sustainability in the automotive sector: An analysis of structured content

    • Authors: Caroline Rodrigues Vaz, Alvaro Guillermo Rojas Lezana, Mauricio Uriona Maldonado
      Pages: 79 - 103
      Abstract: This study aimed to carry out an analysis of the scientific production on the sustainable innovation theme in the automotive sector in the last 10 years. The research was classified as literature, descriptive and exploratory. The process presented 31 articles aligned with the research topic in the Scopus database. The bibliometric analysis identified the most relevant articles, authors, keywords, countries, research center and periodicals that published about the subject from 2004 to 2016 in the Production Engineering domain. We concluded, through the systemic analysis, that the automotive sector is well structured on the issue of sustainability and process innovation. The innovations that this sector performs in its processes are incremental, because they are less risky, lower cost and less complex operations. However, some authors explain that radical innovations are needed in order to fit the prevailing environmental standards. The selected studies show that environmental practices employed in the automotive sector are: the minimization of greenhouse gas emissions, life-cycle assessment, cleaner production, reverse logistics and eco-innovation. Thus, it displays the need for practical research studies in automotive companies about the environmental practices employed and how these practices impact innovation.

  • Technical Solar Photovoltaic Potential of Scaled Parking Lot Canopies: A
           Case Study of Walmart U.S.A.

    • Authors: Ram Krishnan, Amber Haselhuhn, Joshua M. Pearce
      Pages: 104 - 125
      Abstract: Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology can provide sustainable power for the growing global population in cities, but it demands considerable land area. This is a challenge for densely populated cities. However, the stranded assets of non-productive parking lots areas can be converted to solar farms with PV canopies, enabling sustainable electricity generation while preserving their function to park automobiles. This study provides a method for determining the technical and economic potential for converting a national scale retail company’s parking lot area to a solar farm. First, the parking lot area for the company is determined and divided into zones based upon solar flux using virtual maps. Then the potential PV yield in each zone is calculated. A sensitivity analysis is performed on the price per unit power installed, solar energy production as a proxy for conversion efficiency, electricity rates and revenue earned per unit area. To demonstrate this method, analysis of Walmart Supercenters, USA is presented as a case study. The results show solar canopies for parking lot areas are a profitable as well a responsible step in most locations and there is significant potential for sustainable energy deployment in cities by other similar retailers using solar PV canopies.

  • Innovation and economic growth: evidence from financial institutional

    • Authors: Md qamruzzaman
      Pages: 126 - 141
      Abstract: Innovation is the key to bringing changes in the traditional financial system. Innovation in the financial system being new financial products, hybrid financial institutions and new rules and regulations to reform existing financial system. Evolvement of financial institutions in the economy help economy in performing a financial function more effective and efficiently and such performance of financial institution promotes economic growth. The aim of the study to assess the relationship between institutional innovation and economic growth of Bangladesh over the period from 1991 to 2015. During this study, we employ the various econometric model to established association ship between institutional innovation and economic growth. Study results revealed that all the variables are stationary at level and after first difference all the variables become non-stationary. Test of Cointegration results revealed that innovation in the financial system through non-bank financial institutions and the financial market can contribute long run and CPI and spread rate can contribute in short run in the economic growth of Bangladesh. While Granger Causality Test revealed that Capital flow and GDP shows unidirectional causality but financial market development and GDP shows the Bidirectional causal relationship in the economy. It is also observed from causality analysis that capital flow and financial market development shows bidirectional causality, which indicated that innovation either in a financial institution or financial market can cause both variables and eventually influence on economic growth. So policymaker should consider the interrelationship between institutional innovation and economic growth while the formulation of economic policy because policy should expedite the development process in the financial system by making robust financial sector through encouraging financial innovation with banks, non-banks financial institution and capital market as well. Robust financial development can cause positively in overall economic growth in Bangladesh.

  • Empirical Study on the Antecedents Predicting Organizational Innovation of
           the Small and Medium Enterprises in Bangladesh

    • Authors: Luo Fan, Md. Aftab Uddin, Anupam Kumar Das
      Pages: 142 - 150
      Abstract: In the era of global competition, innovation has become a central object to obtain a sustainable future by an organization outrunning their counterparts. Based on the questionnaires survey on Ready-made Garment (RMGs) and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Bangladesh, this empirical study aims at finding the impact of transformational leadership (TL), knowledge management (KM), citizenship behavior or positive deviance (PD), and intrinsic motivation (IM) on organizational innovation (OI). Stratified random sampling has been used for collecting the responses of the SMEs in Bangladesh. Data analysis shows that TL, KM, IM, and PD can predict OI significantly. Limitations, implication and further research directions have also been discussed in this article.

  • Consumption dynamics, Interest rate behavior and the Euler Equation: Time
           series evidence for Nigeria

    • Authors: Uduak Michael Ekong, Christiana Ekong
      Pages: 151 - 169
      Abstract: The study investigated the Consumption-Interest rate Euler relationship for Nigeria in the periods 1980 to 2015. Applying commonly used vector autoregression (VAR) techniques on annual data obtained for the country, the study found that there exist the Consumption-Interest rate Euler relationship for Nigeria. However, our finding refutes the general assertion of theorist that the substitution effect is always larger (and more workable) in the Euler relationship than the income effect. Our results shows that the consumption Euler equation for Nigeria is consumption-driven, an indication that income effect may be more workable in Nigeria thus crowding out the substitution effect. This was further supported by a uni-directional causality that runs through consumption to interest rate. We recommend, among other things, interest rate policy framework that is flexible to economic needs of the region and motivates saving-dissaving culture of the people and consumptions patterns that is financed by cashless financial products.

  • The Co-Innovation Alliance Scan, Tool for Effective Collaboration with
           External Partners

    • Authors: Frans Stel Avans
      Pages: 170 - 179
      Abstract: In order to select and assess co-innovation partners, I have developed an integrative framework coined as the co-innovation alliance scan that consist of four ‘fits’ between alliance partners: a strategic, operation, relationship and network fit. Each fit contains three indicators, to be rated from 1 (unfavorable) to 5 (favorable). High rated indicators prognosticate success, low ones might hamper or impede successful co-innovation cooperation. Using the scan, I constructed a serious “alliance game” in order to develop competencies of (future) alliance managers.
