Review:

This very important book stresses that sustainability is sensible and hard-headed, covering such areas as the legal, financial, economic, industrial, social and behavioural aspects of business ... [S]ustainable measures ... have the happy side-effect of helping to preserve our environment at the same time. This book is one of the most comprehensive and thoughtful guides as to how we might do that. --Professor Eric Cornuel, Director General and CEO, EFMD

... a very useful and interesting introduction to sustainability. ... includes many impressive examples. Easy to read and comprehend. ... an excellent tool for anyone considering adopting sustainable practices in their organization. --Maria Talbot, CSR International

A great book. Highly recommended. Helpfully discusses the obstacles one will face (and how to overcome them) when trying to integrate sustainability and does an excellent job deconstructing why there is so much resistance to integrating it. If you or your business are delving into sustainability, or even if you re a veteran in the field, there is much to be gained from this guide. --Zachary Shahn, Earth & Industry
