Sustainable business innovation and technology management have attracted increasing attention from both practitioners and academics in recent years. In addition, globalisation exerts extra pressure on designing and implementing sustainable operations and supply chains from the global perspective.

The special issue aims to publish the best revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 12th International Conference on Business Innovation and Technology Management (ICBITM12), taking place on 1-3 July 2013, to address the aforementioned issues. The conference provides a forum for the exchange of ideas on the latest business innovation developments with a special focus on sustainable business innovation and technology management. The guest editors also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this issue. We encourage various methodologies including analytical modelling and conceptual, empirical and case studies.
