Government and business roles in sustainability: the Brand model and China
by Lynne Bennington
International Journal of Sustainable Society (IJSSOC), Vol. 2, No. 2, 2010

Abstract: This paper examines the respective roles of business and government if we are to achieve sustainability. The model of Stewart Brand is discussed with reference to the sustainability governance issues in the People's Republic of China (PRC). At a time when many governments seem reluctant to regulate on sustainability issues, the paper recommends a more strongly enacted role for government while promoting a system-wide (or systemic) approach, and not just regulation.
