This book explores the key issues of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and reporting as applied to sports organizations, with particular attention to the Italian environment. It is divided into two parts, the first of which examines the general principles and reporting tools of CSR; these represent the reference point for all types of organization, including sports organizations. The coverage encompasses the evolution of CSR and the latest standards issued by authoritative international public and private institutions. The aim is to provide readers with a sound basis for understanding fully the application of these principles and reporting tools within the world of sport. The second part is devoted to a detailed analysis of the CSR strategies and social reporting initiatives adopted by sports organizations. Although the focus is primarily on Italian sports organizations, due attention is also paid to world benchmarks. In particular, the analysis examines the CSR strategies and reporting initiatives developed by international and Italian sports federations and by two international professional football clubs. The book will be of wide interest to academics, students, and practitioners.

This book deals with a key feature of globalization: the rise of regulation beyond the state. It examines the emergence of transnational regulatory cooperation between public and private actors and pursues an inquiry that is at once legal, empirical and theoretical. It asks why a private actor and an international organization would regulate cooperatively and what this tells us about the material meaning of concepts such as 'expertise', 'authority' and 'legitimacy' in specific domains of global governance. Additionally, the book addresses the structures and patterns in which cooperation evolves and how this affects the broader global order. It does so through an investigation of two public-private cooperative agreements: one between the International Standards Organization, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the Global Compact and the International Labor Organization and one between the International Olympic Committee and the United Nations Environment Programme.

Wenn zwei New York Times-Bestsellerautoren für ihr neuestes Werk unter anderem auf Erkenntnisse von Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson und Jeff Bezos zurückgreifen, dann kommt heraus: ein radikales Manifest, wie exponentiell denkende Unternehmer in den nächsten Jahren die Welt erändern werden. Peter Diamandis und Steven Kotler untersuchen die Technologien, die aktuell ganze Industrien umwälzen und den Weg eines Gründers von 'Ich habe eine Idee' zu 'Ich führe ein Milliardenunternehmen' so kurz wie nie zuvor gemacht haben. Sie geben tiefe Einblicke in die Welt von 3D-Druck, künstlicher Intelligenz, Robotern, intelligenten Netzen und synthetischer Biologie. Sie zeigen, wie man millionenschwere Crowdfunding-Kampagnen lostritt und erfolgreiche Communities gründet. 'Bold' ist Manifest und Ratgeber gleichermaßen. Es ist unverzichtbar für moderne Unternehmer, die disruptive Technologien und die unglaubliche Macht der Crowd nutzen wollen.
