Muhammad Iszaruddin Ismadi, Wei Loon Koe, Mohd Halim Mahphoth


The concept of sustainable entrepreneurship has received much attention recently as a remedy for the issue of environmental deterioration.

Additionally, this study makes an effort to investigate how opportunity recognition functions as a mediator in the connection.
