    In the shadow of the Swedish welfare state: women and the service sector2007Inngår i: Business history review, ISSN 0007-6805, E-ISSN 2044-768X, Vol. 81, s. 451-470Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The twentieth-century history of the Swedish welfare state and public-service sector is critical to understanding the changing role of women in Sweden, as the expansion of the country's service production, beginning in the 1960s, has been mainly the result of welfare-state policies. Yet women's self-employment and wage work in the service industry has been neglected as an economic factor in both traditional economic and business-history accounts and in historical studies of gender. Some suggestions are made for future explorations of the Swedish service sector as it operates in the shadow of the welfare state.

    Understanding and Overcoming Roadblocks to Environmental Sustainability: Past Roads and Future Prospects2019Inngår i: Business history review, ISSN 0007-6805, E-ISSN 2044-768X, Vol. 93, nr 1, s. 127-148Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines key barriers to business sustainability discussed at a multidisciplinary conference held at the Harvard Business School in 2018. Drawing on perspectives from both the historical and business literatures, speakers debated the historical success of and future opportunities for voluntary business actions to advance sustainability. Roadblocks include misaligned incentives, missing institutions, inertia of economic systems, and the concept of sustainability itself. Overcoming these roadblocks will require systematic interventions and alternative normative concepts.

    Sustainability and Shared Value in the Interwar Swedish Copper Industry2016Inngår i: Business history review, ISSN 0007-6805, E-ISSN 2044-768X, Vol. 90, nr 2, s. 197-225Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study of the Swedish-based mining company Boliden examines the proactive strategies it adopted to deal with the potential for severe environmental problems associated with the establishment of its large copper smelter in the 1920s. The article demonstrates how international networks, personal experience, and knowledge transfer from the U.S. copper industry help to explain the importance given to environmental issues by the Swedish industrialists. It is suggested that the main explanation for the proactive stance of the Swedish managers is that they perceived excessive pollution as working against creating a profitable and sustainable business. This case provides compelling evidence that firms pursuing an agenda focused on earning profits can still deliver environmental innovation and value to the local community, compatible with the concept of creating shared value.

    Creating value out of waste: the transformation of the Swedish waste and recycling sector, 1970s-2010s2023Inngår i: Business history review, ISSN 0007-6805, E-ISSN 2044-768X, Vol. 97, nr 1, s. 3-31Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the growth of the waste and recycling sector in Sweden since the 1970s and seeks to identify the conditions for market growth and underlying business dynamics. The article identifies a slow growth pattern at aggregate level in the 1970s, while a major shift toward higher growth rates took place only in the mid-1990s. Resembling the findings of existing studies of German and US industry counterparts, Swedish recycling companies grew larger in the 1970s and more knowledge-intensive from the 1980s. Our study concludes that the growth of the Swedish recycling industry has been driven not only by government policies addressing household waste but even more so by large manufacturing firms that have increasingly demanded more complex recycling services over time.

    Green innovation systems in Swedish industry: 1960-19892011Inngår i: Business history review, ISSN 0007-6805, E-ISSN 2044-768X, Business History Review, Vol. 85, nr 4, s. 677-698Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizational networks had a strong influence on the diffusion of green knowledge within the Swedish pulp-and-paper industry from the mid-1960s to the 1980s. The environmental adaptations made by this industrial sector were not merely the result of a corporate initiative or of the response by firms or industries to environmental regulation. An examination of the innovation-system approach that was used to further the industry's environmental goals reveals that the knowledge and technology development underpinning the project depended on a network of diverse actors. Within this network, the semi-governmental Institute for Water and Air Protection, working with a consulting company, was a critical generator and intermediary of knowledge. Thus, the success of the project was largely due to the Institute's balanced relations with government and industry.
