Innovation and agility will solve most of the greatest threats to our planet’s ecosystem, argue Patrick Dixon and Johan Gorecki.  In Sustainagility, they suggest positive ways that businesses and individuals can address these threats while making a profit.

Subjects covered include: Power; future cities; transport; manufacturing; water and wood; health and food; venture capital; carbon offsetting and banks; business agility and open innovation; 10 steps to profitable sustainability.
