    Nexus between triple bottom line and economic development: an exploratory analysis of economic, environmental and social dimensions
    2024-03-08 - Nogueira, Elisabete; Gomes, Sofia
    Recent global events, such as Covid-19 and the conflict in Ukraine, have disrupted the notion of a sustainable society, resulting in apprehension and economic uncertainty. These multifaceted crises have caused increased unemployment rates and heightened poverty levels, further enhancing existing concerns regarding societal welfare. Consequently, sustainability has gained significant prominence, compelling enterprises to adopt sustainable practices to maintain competitiveness. The triple bottom line framework has risen in importance as an indispensable tool for holistically addressing sustainability concerns. It places equal emphasis on the economic, environmental, and social dimensions, presenting a comprehensive approach that fosters sustainability, resilience, and innovation. It acknowledges the intrinsic connection between companies’ achievements and society’s overall well-being, while strengthening companies competitive positioning. The general objective of this thesis is to understand the influence that triple bottom line, and that each of its dimensions, economic, environmental and social, can exert on economic development. Establishing business strategies that will enable companies to achieve greater positive outcomes, while contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals. A profound understanding of these relations is imperative for ensuring enduring success in an ever-evolving global landscape. In order to achieve the proposed objective, a typology of mixed research, as outlined in Chapters 2 to 6, was employed. The research encompasses the deductive process and five studies that employ the following methodology: 1) bibliometric study; 2), 3) and 5) multiple linear regression models; and 4) meta-regression. Examining the results obtained, it has been established that the triple bottom line acts as an effective partner in the pursuit of boosting economic development, as well as contributing to the enhancement of sustainable outcomes. The three dimensions of the framework are geared towards achieving a unified goal, thereby enhancing firms’ performance. Theoretical frameworks that extend beyond the confines of economic sustainability, embracing the broader facets of environmental preservation and social well-being, are presented. Moreover, the research bridges the gap between theoretical constructs and practical application. Practical insights for both corporate entities and governmental bodies are provided to facilitate the translation of theoretical insights into concrete strategies. In summary, this thesis highlights the growing significance of sustainability in the contemporary business landscape, while it is focused on advancing theoretical understanding, practical application, and the scientific foundations of triple bottom line within the realm of the economic development.

    The contribution of the labour practices to organizational performance: The mediating role of social sustainability
    2024-04-18 - Lopes, João M.; Gomes, Sofia; Nogueira, Elisabete
    In the fiercely competitive global business environment, the attainment of excellence is contingent upon the efficient management of human resources and their alignment with sustainable development goals. This study examines the interplay between labour practices, social sustainability and organizational performance, with a focus on the often-ignored perspectives of employees. Employees, often neglected as critical stakeholders, shape corporate values and strategy. The study uses a quantitative approach, having applied the partial least square method for the proposed research model. Questionnaire responses from 574 Portuguese employees reveal that labour practices (employee development, employee participation and equal opportunity) positively influence perceived social sustainability. Perceived social sustainability positively influences perceived organizational performance. The examined labour practices only exhibit a positive influence on perceived organizational performance when perceived social sustainability acts as a mediator. Companies must place a high priority on the perceptions of their employees to achieve social sustainability. This involves incorporating inclusive, participative and proactive policies regarding human resources policies, thereby leveraging the mutual advantages derived from labour practices. This demonstrates the pivotal role of social sustainability in companies' decision- making processes, as it substantially contributes to enhancing organizational performance. This study emphasizes the importance of integrating social sustainability to maximize organizational performance, providing valuable insights for business leaders. The original model, social sustainability-driven organizational performance, which is based on employees' perceptions, identifies labour practices as antecedents of social sustainability, and the influence of social sustainability, both directly and as a mediator, on organizational performance, is presented
