Summary Managing the natural environment is fundamental to many businesses, yet management scholars have understudied how natural resources are acquired and deployed, how they constrain and challenge strategy and innovation, and how they differ from more conventionally studied resources in management. This book captures leading and thought-provoking conceptual and empirical contributions on how organizations (ought to) interact with such natural resources. Utilizing a distinctly managerial approach, the chapter authors explore topics such as interorganizational relationships, strategic responses, and risk and resilience at the interface of the natural environment. By applying and extending management theories such as resource dependence, transaction costs, the resource-based view, dynamic capabilities and imprinting in a natural resource context, the authors open up multiple avenues for future research. At the same time, they seek to actively build a global community of management scholars interested in natural resources. Multidisciplinary in approach and clear in execution, this book will be of interest to students and researchers studying natural resource management and policy, policymakers from regional, national, and transnational bodies, as well as leaders of environment focused NGOs.
