Abstract: In the past few years, the quest for responsible and sustainable business has emerged as a major theme in academic and practical management discourse. The increasingly intense debate on ethical and social responsible business and the quest for responsible leadership put contemporary business models and current leadership praxis under severe public scrutiny. This paper is written within the framework of a research project that explores the linkages between responsible leadership, sustainable business, innovation, and growth in Swedish-based corporations with a global outreach. The case illustrates how an investment firm is implementing the vision to become the most reputable owner in the industry by leveraging active ownership. The research is based on collaborative case-study approach. The data-collection covers round-table seminars, interviews and documentary material.

Keywords: responsible leadership; sustainable business practices; systematic agility; sustainable ownership; collaborative research; case-study approach
