"Woolworths SA: Making Sustainability Sustainable"
"It is a great honour to have won the Emerald and African Association of Business Schools case writing competition for 2011. Woolworths SA: Making Sustainability Sustainable was a fascinating case to research and write. We believe that the issues raised in the case will lead to a greater interest in and understanding of corporate social responsibility on the part of students of management. It is our hope that this case will show future industry leaders that it is possible to run a profitable organisation in a way that encompasses social responsibility, ethical conduct and environmental awareness."
