A CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

ECOLOGY OF THE NEW ECONOMY
Sustainable Transformation of Global Information, Communication, and
Electronics Industries


Greenleaf Publishing invites contributions for a new book on 'Ecology of the
New Economy: Sustainable Transformation of Global Technology, Communication,
and Electronics Industries', to be edited by Jacob Park and Nigel Roome.


****************
Background: Issues and Questions

A 'revolution' is taking place in the development of global information and
communication technologies. Case in point: in slightly more than a decade,
the World Wide Web has gone from an idea of an obscure English scientist to
a consumer-oriented technology system with an expected one billion users,
including 700 million people outside the US, by 2005. The technologies that
enable this to happen are advancing rapidly and this is provoking new
companies as well as a series of new alliances between companies.

The growth has been so rapid and unexpected that little research and
analysis has yet been done on what impact this transformation has had or
will have on the ability of companies to meet the global sustainability
challenge.

As environmental strategy has traditionally been portrayed in terms of risk
cutting and resource efficiency, there is a danger that critical business
issues such as information technology R&D and e-commerce development are
examined separately and away from the wider sustainable business
perspective.

An important objective of the book is to explore, document and raise
awareness of sustainability concerns arising from the emerging global
information economy. The information economy is defined in the broadest
sense possible, including software, hardware, telecommunication -
traditional and wireless - and advanced communication technologies.

Some key issues and questions that will be examined in the book include:

* Case studies of how and to what degree sustainability concerns are being
integrated into the business model of electronic, telecommunication, and
.com firms

* The relationship between the diffusion of information and communication
technologies and the energy and resource intensity of companies

* The role of information and communication technologies in the shaping of
policies for sustainability, its impacts on sustainable or unsustainable
lifestyles and its implications for the interaction between companies and
other actors

* Corporations and the global digital divide

****************
