Abstract [en]

Ports are under increasing pressure to become more sustainable. Although some ports have been including sustainability into their operations, this has been mainly done from economic and environmental perspectives and technological or policy‐related approaches, while there has been little research on organisational change management for sustainability. This paper analyses organisational change efforts for sustainability at the Port of Gävle, Sweden. Twenty‐three face‐to‐face interviews were conducted with various stakeholders. The findings show that there were differences in perception of sustainability; but similarities in the drivers for and the barriers to sustainability (with some key differences between the internal and external stakeholders). This research shows that, in their journey towards becoming more sustainable, ports have to take a holistic approach encompassing the four dimensions of sustainability (economic, environmental, social, and time); their stakeholders (internal and external); and legislative, technological, financial, cultural/social, voluntary initiatives, and organisational change management approaches.

Abstract [en]

Seaports are major transport hubs of the global economy. Their activities pose negative impacts on the environment, the social, and the economic dimensions of sustainability. Seaports are complex systems with unique characteristics and their sustainability efforts are dependent on the local context, ownership structure, size, and operations. A number of ports have started to assess and report their sustainability efforts; however, there is limited information on the coverage of sustainability issues and the performance of port sustainability activities. This paper assesses the indicator coverage of 24 sustainability reports of seaports from worldwide that follow the GRI guidelines using the Holistic Assessment of Sustainability Performance in Seaports (HASPS) framework. The HASPS was developed by the authors based on a literature review and expands the GRI guidelines with port-specific indicators and interlinking issues. The results show that there is a great variety of coverage of information disclosed regarding all five dimensions of the HASPS (economic, environmental, social, port system, and interlinking issues). Ports that use the GRI guidelines, management systems and certifications, have a good coverage of sustainability issues; coverage however is better in ports that have developed additional port-specific indicators. The paper highlights the importance of a harmonised port sustainability assessment, which can be used by all ports regardless of their unique characteristics.

Abstract [en]

Companies have been under increasing pressure to engage with stakeholders to advance their sustainability engagement. Collaboration has been recognised as a key element in such efforts. While the need for collaboration among organisations is increasingly recognised, there is still a need to better understand with whom companies collaborate, and how stakeholders might influence the process. This study analyses how companies collaborate in regards to sustainability and highlights the need to differentiate between influence on stakeholders and importance when establishing collaboration partnerships. This research proposes a collaboration for sustainability model including internal and external stakeholders on the vertical and horizontal level.

Abstract [en]

Higher education institutions (HEIs) play a major role in the development of societies. In the last decades, there has been an increasing interest on the commercialisation of knowledge by universities for economic development that lead to the emergence of the term “Entrepreneurial University”. This study aims to report the sustainability efforts of the University of Gävle, Sweden by applying a systematic tool, Graphical Assessment of Sustainability in Universities (GASU). This study highlights sustainability reporting as a way to improve communication practices between universities and stakeholder. The systematic and holistic assessment of HEIs gives insights of collaboration opportunities and by that foster their entrepreneurial journey.
