About this book

Industry cannot be separated from nature. Indeed, linked to the current high profile of environmental issues is a growing sense that industrialization has now caused damage to the environment that will be difficult, if not impossible, to rectify. The Business of Greening debates the relationship between business and greening, and the future form this relationship could take. The book gives voice to industrial actors - employees, employers, managers, technical specialists, regulators - in the context of their organizations, within industrial sectors or as part of wider institution regimes. The business of greening is taken as socially constructed, shaped through tensions and competing interests which produce outcomes that are sometimes unexpected, sometimes hopeful. Contributors write from a wide range of different social sciences including sociology, geography, organizational science and psychology. This is a unique collection of findings from field projects within the Global Environmental Change research programme of the UK Economic and Social Research Council, and will be of particular interest to students and researchers of environmental and business studies, and to those who shape environmental policy in government and industry.
