9780470590751: The Green to Gold Business Playbook: How to Implement Sustainability Practices for Bottom-Line Results in Every Business Function

"Implement the green strategies outlined in Dan Esty's and Andrew Winston’s bestseller Green to Gold"

Hard-nosed business advice for gaining competitive advantage through sustainability action in buildings and operations, information technology, product design, sourcing, manufacturing, logistics and transportation, marketing, accounting, and other key business functions

Whether you are a climate change skeptic or an environmentalist, sustainability issues cannot be ignored in today’s corporate world.  With rising energy and natural resource costs, intensified regulations, investor pressures, and a growing demand for environmentally friendly products, sustainability is no longer an option—it’s a business imperative.

Unlike many green business books, the Playbook skips the environmental ideology and deals exclusively with tools and strategies that have been shown to cut costs, reduce risks, drive revenues, and build brand identity.

  • Builds on Dan Esty and Andrew Winston’s prizewinning Green to Gold, which has become a business classic and a staple of management training across the world.
  • Shows in detail how each business function or department can achieve an eco-advantage over the competition
  • Offers frameworks, checklists, and action plans applicable to any business–big or small, in manufacturing or services

The Green to Gold Business Playbook gives you the tools to make green work-and work profitably-for your business.

From the Inside Flap:

Whether you are a climate-change skeptic or an ardent environmentalist, sustainability issues cannot be ignored in today’s corporate world. With rising energy and natural resource costs, intensified regulations, investor pressures, and a growing demand for environmentally friendly products, sustainability is no longer an option—it’s a business imperative.

Building on the bestselling book Green to Gold by Dan Esty and Andrew Winston, The Green to Gold Business Playbook tells how to put sustainability considerations into practice for competitive advantage. While Green to Gold explained why every business needs a sustainability strategy, the Playbook spells out how to achieve an Eco-Advantage. This concrete guide shows the way to sustainability for companies of any size in any industry.

Filled with essential tools and real-world examples, the Playbook gives job-specific advice that can be read selectively or from cover to cover. Whether you’re a CEO or a team leader, you’ll get step-by-step guidance on how to:

  • Cut costs and increase profit margins by driving greater efficiencies in buildings and facilities, information technology, manufacturing, supply chain and logistics, and more
  • Grow revenues by designing and marketing environmentally superior goods and services that meet your customers’ desires for energy efficiency, reduced pollution, and healthier products
  • Build your brand and image by connecting with the values and rising expectations of consumers, employees, and other key stakeholders
  • Identify and reduce regulatory risks across your value chain

Failing to stay on top of sustainability trends will hurt your company. But implementing an Eco-Advantage strategy could vault you into industry leadership with huge revenue gains and unmatched customer loyalty. The Green to Gold Business Playbook will tell you everything about the how of sustainability. The only question you’ll have left is when.
