Focusing on the South East European region, mostly consisting of former Yugoslavian countries, economists and scholars of business and of specific businesses address the growing need for more research to expand the knowledge base about environmental and developmental challenges as well as about the new, efficient, and climate-neutral Green Economy of the region. Among their topics are going beyond green: exploring sustainability in Slovenia, sustainable waste management practices: challenges in the Republic of Macedonia, green orientation in tourism in Western Balkan countries, potentials of the Upper Danube region in the Republic of Serbia for sustainable tourism development, and consumer innovativeness and organic food purchase intentions.
