About this book

Organisations that prioritise environmental, health and safety (EHS) issues are well placed to attract better customers, better talent and attract more of today's growing number of socially responsible investors. To gain these benefits, companies must choose the right sustainability strategies and then manage and measure them well.

Now, leading business sustainability consultant Peter Soyka offers you a complete and actionable guide to driving greater value through sustainability. This book shows you how sustainability impacts today's enterprise: stakeholders, investor issues, performance management/measurement and more. This is for every environmental, health and safety professional and decision-maker who wants to drive more value from sustainability.

The opportunities for adding value through sustainability are out there. Managers just need to choose the right strategies, and then manage and measure them effectively. This actionable guide aims to help do exactly that, with particular attention to stakeholder, investor and performance management issues.
