The organizational approach to sustainability has become a priority for more and more organizations. Environmental issues that include climate change, depletion of natural resources, waste management and many others are in the form of priority trends that have a considerable effect on organizational management, competitiveness, growth strategy and stakeholders. The combination of these challenges is the most important opportunity for territorial, organizational and societal units. The major challenge is found in organizations that have very large amounts of data. These amounts of data are complemented by investments in new technologies that add new data. Optimal use of this data for sustainable development is a challenge for shareholders and management. Often these data are used in a qualitative approach, predominantly. To optimize organizational decisions, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Blockchain and other related technologies offer the possibility to capture the value and improve the decision system. AI offers new opportunities to improve packaging performance as volume and complexity increase, and the distribution chain can be improved. ML contributes to the improvement of the decision-making process, offering directions to new innovations.
Guest editors are looking for publications that address these topics, but their work is not limited to these, including other aspects of artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain for sustainability research, as follows:
- Technology for sustainability;
- Artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain for environmental dimension;
- Artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain for circular economy;
- Artificial inteligence, machine learning and blockchain for sustainable decisions;
- Blockchain for supply chain efficiency;
- Life cycle assessment;
- Efficiency of the decision-making system based on related technologies;
- Academic perspectives and propositions for future research on sustainability;
- Emerging technologies for organizational sustainability;
- Organizational models;
- Applications used to improve organizational competitiveness;
