About this title

Synopsis:

Sustainability: All That Matters, by award-winning writer and campaigner Chris Goodall argues that building a sustainable society is perhaps the greatest test that the world has ever faced. Today's generation has borrowed from the future by grabbing prosperity now and imposing the cost on the next generation.

In this startling and informative book, which will appeal to both students and general readers, Goodall provides the first coherent new explanation of what sustainability actually is. Goodall then goes onto explore nine key sustainability challenges, applying the theory of sustainability to look at food, travel, clothing, electricity, heating and cooling, paper and cardboard, construction, consumer electronics, and air travel.

This accessible and concise book will appeal to both students and general readers, giving a challenging and thought-provoking introduction to sustainability - and what matters most about it.

About the Author:

Chris Goodall is a highly regarded writer and campaigner on environmental issues. Educated at Cambridge University and Harvard Business School, he is one of the leading global voices on sustainability. He writes regularly for the Guardian, and on his widely followed blog 'Carbon Commentary'.

Chris is an award winning writer. Ten Technologies to Save the Planet was listed in the Financial Times Books of the Year. How to Live a Low-Carbon Life won the Clarion Award for non-fiction and was described by the New Scientist as 'the definitive guide for reducing your carbon footprint.'
