Whereas a rising literature on sustainable entrepreneurship seeks to investigate how they do this, rigorous microfoundations for such investigations do not yet exist. The resulting integrated model of collective action serves both as a practical guide for entrepreneurs seeking to tackle sustainability issues and as a theoretical framework for researchers to develop rigorous microfoundations for future empirical work.
