Abstract

Sustainable Business Models and eco-innovation processes point toward a balance between a value chain that answers the customer needs and the ecological and social needs. Several authors propose local or regional oriented recommendations, in order to meet this balance and correct the environmental and social negative impact of the globalization.
In this paper, we revisit four dimensions of the Business Model from a localism point of view. Value proposition, downstream, upstream and financial dimensions are reassessed in the frame of the Localism Business Model in order to facilitate the conceptualisation of the local or regional vision.
To finish, a case study will be introduced based on a SME to illustrate how the Localism Business Model would enhanced eco-innovation.
