International Journal of Competitiveness (IJC), Vol. 2, No. 2, 2022

Abstract: The current dominance of NGO-corporate alliances, underlines how partnerships of this kind hold potential for solving problems related to social issues. Such alliances may be deemed an important target of study on how business-nonprofit (B2N) partnerships can meet the SDGs. The purpose of this integrative literature review was to gain greater understanding of a macrolevel conceptualisation of such alliances in order to provide recommendations for further scholarly research on building collaborative partnerships through leveraging the symbiotic sustainability business model. This study was grounded in the concepts of sustainable business models and NGOs-corporate alliances. Content analysis of the selected B2N partnerships and the symbiotic sustainability model (SSM) reports and peer-reviewed literature was conducted to obtain the most relevant knowledge of how B2N partnerships can be built through leveraging the symbiotic sustainability business model. The results are presented in the form of conceptual reasoning.
