This study explores how lack of top management commitment moderates the relationship between CSR and Corporate Sustainability.</p> <p><strong> </strong><strong>Design/Methodology/Approach:</strong> We used non-probability sampling technique by employing convenience sampling for data collection. By employing a survey questionnaire, data were collected from 397 employees of SMEs in Ghana. The IBM Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 25.0 and IBM's Analysis of Moments of Structures (AMOS) version 24 softwares packages were employed as analytical tools in this investigation.</p> <p><strong> </strong><strong>Findings:</strong> Board composition, the board size, institutional ownership, and CEO- Chair duality had varying influences on economic, environmental, and social dimensions of corporate social responsibility. The moderating role of top management commitment was confirmed for the relationship between the environmental dimension of corporate social responsibility and corporate sustainability.</p> <p><strong> </strong><strong>Research, Practical &amp; Social implications:</strong> Future studies can consider other indicators of corporate governance and assess their influence on the various dimensions of CSR as well as their linkage with Corporate Sustainability. </p> <p><strong>Implications/Originality/Value:</strong> It’s concluded that corporate governance systems exhibit varying interactions with corporate social responsibility dimensions which may be due to changes in the national and institutional framework as well as economic conditions and the type of industry.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> 2022-02-03T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Kwame Duffour Agriculture startups (AgTechs): a bibliometric study using SciMAT and VOSviewer software 2022-03-09T12:31:02-03:00 Lucas Olegário Bueno Jéssica Alves Justo Mendes Arthur Yassine Oliveira Mateus Cecílio Gerolamo <p>Due to the population increase and the problems related to environmental sustainability that this increase will bring to the planet, the agribusiness sector has a great responsibility to fulfill, in the sense of feeding a growing population sustainably. In this context, there is an increase in investment in innovative technologies, many of them developed and marketed by AgTechs, the technological startups in agribusiness, which have emerged with strength in this 4.0 agriculture scenario, where increasingly accurate, connected technologies are desired, and environmentally sustainable. Despite the growing interest from different markets in the subject of AgTechs, studies showing, in general, and in-depth, the development of the subject in the scientific literature was not found. Thus, this work aimed to present a bibliographical study on the theme of agricultural startups (AgTechs). The methodology used was the bibliometric study, using SciMAT and VOSviewer software. The databases used for the study were Web of Science and Scopus. The results showed that the theme is not well consolidated in the literature, but it is in a dizzying growth, with 71.3% of the articles having been published in the last 3 years, in 79 journals, and with publications covering 44 countries. The study brought important contributions to a better understanding of the term AgTech in the literature and the improvement of concepts related to this ecosystem.</p> 2022-04-29T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Lucas Olegário Bueno, Jéssica Alves Justo Mendes, Arthur Yassine Oliveira, Mateus Cecílio Gerolamo
