Abstract [en]

The paper describes and debates business sustainability beyond zero emissions and neutralised impacts through compensatory performance. Our findings highlight the interconnections and interdependences of sustainability issues across contexts and through time. The vision of performance beyond zero is necessary and required to achieve glocal business sustainability. The implications also include a broadened and positioned view in the present and for the future on the emissions and impacts generated by the world of business locally and globally in relation to Earth's local and global life- and eco-systems. We argue for the future that it is necessary and required to move beyond zero to heal and restore the negative emissions and impact so far caused. The rational and contribution is an offensive and proactive view of contemporary visions and mission of glocal business sustainability performance beyond zero.
