Sustainable performance accounts for a critical issue for top management and operational managers facing the green and social transition. Accordingly, they require a clear roadmap indicating how to build ESG strategy, track and report on sustainability performance and manage these results in the longer term. This monograph offers insight into the topic of sustainability performance measurement, reporting and management in business organisations and institutions. The Authors from various countries, including Austria, Brazil, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania and Poland, present their broad perspectives and opinions, refer to various business sectors, and indicate how the regulatory framework and institutional bodies support sustainable development. With this focus, the book may interest accounting and management scholars, doctoral and master's students of socio-economic studies, and business practitioners. The book can also be used as supplementary material for accounting and management courses at the graduate and postgraduate levels.
