About this book

Exposing the contradictions seen in businesses taking environmental and social concerns into account whilst pursuing profitability above all, this study presents illuminating case studies of different corporate approaches and solutions to the dilemmas involved.

'A well structured book written in an easily accessible style. It presents a welcome sociological view of the greening of corporations, using the theory of ecological modernization as a framework of analysis and explanation for corporate responses to the environmental challenge.' Business Strategy and the Environment Journal
