Praise for the previous edition:
'This book should be read by anyone who has any past, present, or future involvement in corporate 'greening'. The authors have done a great service in applying numerous organizational development concepts and approaches to the increasingly important area of sustainability. If you want to change organizations for the better, this is an indispensable source of ideas and information,' - Mark Starik, GW Environmental and Social Sustainability Initative
'This is a must read for senior managers concerned about the role of the corporation in society following the collapse of the bubble economy of the 1990s. Dunphy and his associates argue persuasively that investor capitalism must give way to a more enlightened view of managements' responsibilities. Based on extensive research, the authors chart the path leading corporations have taken and others could follow if their leaders took the advice offered in this book.' - Michael Beer, Harvard Business School, USA
