摘要:可持续发展解决了影响这个和未来几代人的环境和社会问题。当家族企业认为社区受到破坏,认识到环境问题并通过实施新的环境政策或法规作出反应时,家族企业的社会情感价值观就会向更可持续的生产体系转型,比如“循环经济”。在Dubin(1978)方法论 - 一种通过演绎构建模型的范式 - 我们设计了一个可持续模型,它显示了家族企业对环境变化的反应。它基于社会情绪财富理论(SEW)解释了家族企业向循环经济转型的原因。我们通过对西班牙市场食品零售领导者Mercadona的案例研究来检查模型,该模型将能源,资源和废弃物政策应用于循环经济业务模式。由于Mercadona具有强大的家庭特征,这种情况对其他家族企业的决策可能有用。 关键词:循环经济;可持续性;家族企业;模型;案例分析;梅尔卡多纳
