Landscape Cenosis Sustainability of Enterprise

Landscape Cenosis Sustainability of Enterprise

Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 9 (no. 4),

Sustainability has become a critical area of company management with a holistic approach and a synergistic consideration of the economic, environmental, and social aspects of an enterprise. Given the growing importance of sustainable development, theories of sustainability in firms have evolved over the past decades, the logic of which allows for some generalizations and formulating more promising paths of development. This article provides an overview of evolving theories linking sustainability with enterprises in the context of their impact on prospective research in this area from a position of focus on resource limitations. The article shows that the main theories related to sustainability go through a logical chain of development from «corporate social responsibility» to a «green economy», which led to the formation of integrated approaches of a coevolution type and an extended view of production as a cenosis. The cenological landscape of enterprise sustainability allows you to create effective management approaches and evaluate solutions in this area in the context of system efficiency.

Keywords: sustainability; sustainable development of an enterprise; co-evolution; economic cenosis
