Governance and Sustainability: Do we need new knowledge?
Save to My Collections
Struggles and upheavals around the world highlight that there is a lack of sufficient knowledge to support workers for sustainable development. Research shows that new knowledge must be developed continuously for the purposes of survival and success (DeNisi, Hitt & Jackson, 2003). This paper discusses governance from an organisational and personal perspective to achieve sustainability. It is believed that businesses need to achieve higher levels of consciousness and address internal organisational factors affecting governance in order to achieve the full spectrum of corporate sustainability. Since the Self in all respects is instrumental in playing a central role towards sustainable development, developing self-knowledge is not only vital for personal sustainability but it is also important for social cohesion and connectedness. Given that organisations predominantly operate in the online environment, e-learning is explored as a sustainability tool to develop the global consciousness required to meet the needs of increased globalisation.
