This paper investigates how businesses might create balanced social, environmental and economic value through integrating sustainability more fully into the core of their business. For this purpose a more systematic approach to business model innovation for sustainability is required. A novel value mapping tool is proposed to help firms create value propositions better suited for sustainability. The tool adopts a multiple stakeholder view of value, a network rather than firm centric perspective, and introduces a novel way of conceptualizing value that specifically introduces value destroyed and value missed, in addition to traditional terms of the core value proposition, and new opportunities for value creation and capture. This will support business modelling for sustainability.
