Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore the new forms of governance that are emerging to facilitate corporate sustainability. Design/methodology/approach The research methodology draws on multiple case study research, examining the research question through the lens of two case examples: a government/industry partner program, itself comprising multiple cases, and an industry consultative committee. Findings While these cases involve different motivations for collaborative decision-making, they each involve inter-organisational decision-making. Such decision-making requires the establishment of new processes of governance. Research limitations/implications More case examples need to be explored and subjected to more detailed discourse analysis. Practical implications Suggestions for new decision-making models that could be usefully taken up by governments and corporations to address stakeholder disputes. Originality/value The paper makes suggestions for appropriate forms of governance by process if sustainability outcomes are to be achieved that are acceptable to a range of corporate stakeholders
