Abstract High aptitude characteristics of an entrepreneur would lead one to realize the importance of dealing with sustainability issues. Yet, not all those involved in the sustainability debate are eager to pursue sustainability with enthusiasm. Different stakeholder groups have been observed dealing with sustainability through their discursive action and that of others. Stakeholder groups considered are Traditional Shareholders, Incentive Coerced Management, Enlightened Management, and Activists. These stakeholder groups are shown to each engage in a unique discourse, which provides insight into how they approach sustainability and react to other approaches. These discourses are understood in this paper with a framework derived from Foucauldian thought and Harré¿s positioning theory. In doing so, this unique approach derives a greater level of understanding about the different points of view about sustainability. Entrepreneurs can harness this to improve how to best approach sustainability.
