Transnational Corporations Review (TNCR) is an academic journal dedicated to publishing peer-reviewed, high-quality research on issues related to transnational corporations. Faced with the global challenges of climate change, energy efficiency and sustainability, transnational corporations must introduce real measures to make themselves and their product range less environmentally damaging, and more conducive to a sustainable world. Strong environmental and short-term economic pressures have led to a shift towards more eco-friendly products, less emissions and resource consumption. Corporations can also find new sources of income by increasing sustainability, cutting costs and maximizing resource efficiency. Thus, the technological and management innovation presents an excellent business opportunity.

In order to establish a discourse on technology, innovation and sustainable development that will engage corporation managers, academic and research institutions and people concerned about the structural and institutional changes needed to make the transition to sustainable development in both emerging and developed countries, we call for papers for a special issue focused on technology, innovation and sustainable development.
