About this book

With increasing awareness that innovative technology alone is insufficient to make sustainable lifestyles a reality, Business Models for Sustainability brings into sharp focus the need to create radical new business models. This insightful book provides a theoretically grounded but also realistic account of how the design of business models can be a critical component in the overall transition to sustainability, and one that transcends the usual focus on innovative technology. Weaving together key principles and components for business sustainability, Business Models for Sustainability highlights five very different pathways to the future for sectors ranging from microbreweries and printing through to clothing, mobility and plastics.

Business has only just started the first few tentative steps towards a very different approach to creating and sustaining value, but Business Models for Sustainability concludes that enormous opportunities will emerge alongside new ways of creating and capturing value. Academics and postgraduate students in the fields of sustainable business, business organisations and industrial ecology will find Business Models for Sustainability brings a greater understanding of business strategy and structure to the discipline. While traditionally referenced and structured, this academic book is accessibly written with key principles that may also appeal to the consultant community.
