Research interests

Sustainability; socially responsible business; social entrepreneurship; non-market strategy.

Nareuporn seeks to understand how businesses can take the lead in solving the world’s problems at scale and contribute toward a sustainable economy. To this end, she examines sustainability as a systemic and multilevel analysis of the interactions between organisations and stakeholders. Specifically, her work focuses on two main themes, employing two main methods. First, factors that explain the difference of firms’ adoption and implementation of sustainability practices, and stakeholders’ evaluations of such difference in organisations’ pursuit of sustainability (quantitative analyses). Second, psychological mechanisms that explain different behavioural reactions of individual stakeholders toward varying corporate adoption and communication of sustainability practices (field and online experiments). She seeks to contribute new theoretical insights into sustainability research, while advance the scholarship at the nexus of strategic management and organisation theory.

Nareuporn Piyasinchai is a member of the Strategy & International Business subject group.
