About this book

The Business Guide to Sustainability is a practical introduction to implementing a comprehensive sustainability strategy in any organization. Written by top business consultants, this useful book can be applied in both large and small enterprises. This edition shifts away from a discussion of CSR to focus more squarely on sustainability. It explores strategies for implementing sustainability in each of the functional areas of the corporation (accounting, HR, operations, etc.), while providing examples from a range of sectors, including manufacturing, services, and government. The Business Guide to Sustainability also includes the authors' S-CORE assessment tool to help organizations determine whether they are on the right track, identify new opportunities, and assign accountability and responsibility.

Brimming with interesting stories and examples, and covering new developments such as the emergence of BRICs and the effects of the Great Recession, The Business Guide to Sustainability will interest managers, business owners, and students for whom sustainability is a priority.
