Healthy Business Environment and Facing Intolerable Disruptions

Part of the Sustainable Development Goals Series book series (SDGS)

Abstract

As (Forrer et al. (2012) How business can foster peace. US Institute of Peace. Available from: https://www.jstor.org/stable/pdf/resrep12185.pdf) suggest, there are ways that businesses can foster peace, ideally with specific “policies, characteristics, and operating environments” for peace-promoting behaviour.

The greatest ones grow up while growing their visions.

—Ali Cheshmehzangi, 2018
