Examines the efforts to define and implement the concept of sustainable economic development, its relationship to the use of `natural' capital and human welfare, and its influence on recent environmental policy debates. The authors, who previously wrote Blueprint for a Green Economy, show how far environmental concerns have been integrated into everyday economic decision making - through the valuation of environmental goods and services, cost-benefit techniques, indicators for sustainable development, and the use of market-based instruments for environmental policy making around the world.

John Dixon, Lead Environmental Economist, the World Bank 'Blueprint for a Sustainable Economy demonstrates that when economics is properly applied, it offers some of the most powerful tools for achieving sustainability.' Amory B Lovins, Co-Founder, and CEO (Research), Rocky Mountain Institute.
