Abstract Firms with well-formulated competitive market strategies could still fail due to their lack of effective nonmarket strategy. Climate change poses significant threats to firms and presents firms’ need to develop nonmarket strategy integrated with market strategy. Relying on the unique dataset of US S&P 500 firms’ responses to climate change, this study seeks to ask why some firms attempt to engage in climate policy making, while others do not do so. The results found that firms with organizational resources and capabilities underlying their carbon market strategy are more likely to support mandatory climate policy. It sheds light on the significance of integrated market and nonmarket strategies, particularly when business opportunities are controlled more by governments than by markets.

The new global economy and its branches need to be both sustainable and entrepreneurial. In the world where finitude of resources can be eye-witnessed, decisions that lay upon the principles of people, profit, and planet have the ability to preserve the quality of life of present and future generations. Tourism is one of those sectors which have largely expanded over the past decades and whose development affects countries, economies, and natural resources. Sustainable tourism appears to be a natural fit for entrepreneurs wishing to establish new ventures and pursue business opportunities in today's dynamic yet complex business climate. This chapter examines the nexus between entrepreneurship and sustainable tourism. On the basis of theoretical framework and the review of relevant global environmental and tourism-specific tendencies, an online empirical study was conducted to understand how young adults perceive entrepreneurship and sustainability in tourism and the contribution of the two to sustainable development.

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated changes in company management, valuing coopetition as a collective strategy by strengthening the dynamic capabilities defined by Teece et al. as the firm's ability to integrate, build, and reconfigure external and internal competencies in rapidly changing environments. The adaptive capacity will prepare the company for adversity; the absorptive capacity favors the acquisition, assimilation, transformation, and application of external knowledge to create and maintain competitive advantages, and the capacity to innovate allows the identification of new business opportunities. The research showed that for the studied group, the good use of the dynamic absorption and adaptation capacities present in coopetition strongly contributes to the development of innovation competences, thus achieving and sustaining competitive advantage.

Institutional potential plays a key role in creating business opportunities. However, past studies did not emphasize on the consistency and the interaction between institutional and entrepreneurial potential-shaping factors. This research aimed to explore the role of these two aspects in spotting market gaps and encouraging competitiveness. Mixed methods were used, with basic concepts focusing on new institutional economic theory. The results showed that standardization, commercialization, technology, productivity, invention, social capital, and human capital strengthened institutional potential and social entrepreneurship. This created more ventures and encouraged competition. However, there is a need to eliminate institutional barriers to improve the efficiency and productivity of the socio-cultural-economic systems.
