„Sustainable Organizations“, with Jakub Hajda and Jan Starmans


We develop a theory of sustainability-driven stakeholder governance to study how stakeholders with pro-social preferences influence organizations' sustainability-their social outcomes. While stronger pro-social preferences render a stakeholder's project choice more sustainable and may increase her incentives to control it, other stakeholders may respond by limiting the stakeholder's formal control rights. This can lead to an overall decline in organizations' sustainability as stakeholders become more pro-social.
