Our study advances knowledge on the system-level impact of stakeholder integration in firms’ sustainability-oriented innovations (SOI). We develop a conceptual model for understanding such SOI in the context of socio-ecological systems (SES) and operationalize it with a set of components for assessing SOI’s system-level impact. Taking a configurational approach, we empirically study the impact of innovations from 14 firms in eight countries using qualitative comparative analysis (QCA). Our analysis uncovers two configurations of stakeholder collaboration associated with system-level sustainability impacts and makes the case for a high level of openness to external influence as a recipe for system-level impact. Early inclusion of stakeholders in SOI processes is needed, but it must be coupled with a high majority of non-profit oriented stakeholders or an impact extender stakeholder who intensifies the impact of SOI. We contribute to research on systems within management studies, as well as SOI and SES literatures by identifying conditions that advance the system-level impact of firm action.
