Abstract

The purpose of this study is to show that responsible leaders are those who are risk takers and develop a risk culture that encourages sustainable innovation. Through a review of literature, it was revealed that research on sustainable development seems to have underestimated the role of responsible leadership in embedding a risk culture that underpins sustainable innovation. Therefore, this study through a critical approach, discusses the strategic imperative of a risk culture that encourages sustainable innovation in organisations and how a responsible leader can instil such culture. The study further proposes four (4) set of actions through which responsible leaders can establish and maintain a risk culture that promotes sustainable innovation; this is relevant to both decision makers and practitioners
