Sustainable strategic management in rapidly emerging economies: the case of Chile
This paper describes Sustainable Strategic Management (SSM) activities and evaluates Chile's performance in attempting to manage its economy within the framework of SSM principles. It discusses the economic, environmental and social factors that have shaped the development of SSM policies in Chile. Although, Chile has enjoyed significant economic advances during the last three decades, the nation now faces a number of challenges as it attempts to sustain both rapid economic growth and its environmental and social stability. As such, Chileans have begun to consider the connection between market sustainability and environmental sustainability. This paper provides insight into the factors and elements that are important for policy- makers, managers and social scientists.
