About this book

Sustainability Strategy is a practical guide to achieving sustainability goals for the public sector, business and natural resource management.

Including international examples but written specifically for an Australian context, Sustainability Strategy explains:
*the management tools available and how to use them, and
*how to select the right tools to achieve your goals.

Sustainability Strategy shows how social and economic factors such as consumption patterns impact on sustainability, and how strategies can be designed and implemented to influence individual and organisational behaviour. In particular, the authors show how regulation, market instruments, incentive payments and information can be systematically used to change behaviour in favour of the sustainable use of limited resources.
Using a combination of expert interviews, practical case studies and a step-by-step guide to strategy development and implementation, Sustainability Strategy is an essential tool for organisations of all sizes that wish to create environmentally responsible practices.

Does a text written for natural resource managers have application to the work of educators? The short answer is a qualified yes. Many of the scenarios and strategies described resonate within education practice. The authors carefully explain important concepts through an instrumentalist lens, though many of these may not be of interest to all educators. The writing is informative, if never sparkling, and there are several key messages to take away. We really don't know how to move forward in all situations, we have to learn as we go. The contribution Martin and Verbeek make in this book is to signpost some promising pathways. - Australian Journal of Environmental Education, Summer 2006-07
