Bob Doppelt is the first sustainability expert to describe the nuances and challenges of successfully implementing a systemic sustainability program. Where others have said that "you need to get the people in the organization involved," Doppelt goes deeper and tells us how to do this.
His comprehensive approach, systems thinking, and concrete examples give us previously unavailable insights about successfully implementing sustainability programs in organizations.
I especially appreciate that he includes economic, population, and social equity concerns and not just the technical aspects of protecting and improving the environment.
I have recommended this book to all my sustainability Ph.D. students.

At the cutting edge Sept. 30 2005
By Paul Liotsakis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While the concept of sustainability and sustainable development is still ethereal, Bob Doppelt has his finger at the pulse of our best thinking, practices and strategy for implementation. I resonate with his view that the process of achieving sustainability is messy and non-linear and people enter it from many directions. This book has informed my understanding and has helped structure a subject that has a moving target component to it. Bob Doppelt's work has credibility and substance for me.

Change Management at its Best Feb. 28 2011
By Frank Roettgers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
With "Leading Change Toward Sustainability" Doppelt wrote an useful guide for everyone who starts from the beginning and wants to make his business sustainable. Well structured, this book leads the reader through several stages of how to become sustainable. Although I missed some explanations at various points why Doppelt suggests his ideas, it offers a lot of practical advice for restructuring a company. He could have gotten a bit more into detail when it comes to environmental practices and their relation to sustainability, but apart from that I liked the read very much and recommend it.

We need this book today! May 3 2014
By David Roitman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While originally written in 2002 and updated 4 years ago, this book is very current. The author masterfully reviews what companies are actually doing to make products, services, and processes "do no harm" and in a growing number of cases contribute positively to the ability of species to thrive on earth - including ours. Most importantly, he has a profound understanding of organizational change - clearly gained from personal experience and his own research as well as the large body of literature on the topic. He boils down this massive literature to the most important concepts and methods related to "making change really happen" to enable sustainability efforts to succeed in organizations. I highly recommend this book.
