Great resource for corporate insiders Aug. 29 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been looking for quite awhile for a book that provides support for introducing sustainability thinking into business planning in a way that might appeal to CEOs. I didn't find one until I found this new book by Bob Willard. (Note: Hunter Lovins provides a foreword).

Bob Willard claims this book fills a unique niche, and as far as I know he's right. And it's an important niche for readers who are trying to build a business case for sustainability.

The book is an easy read, which shouldn't be confused with a simplistic treatment of complex information. Willard organizes a lot of material drawn from a wide range of sources into a coherent and well-argued whole. He also includes a lot of well selected quotations around the topic.

His bibliography at the end of the book is also very good.

Excellent Resource March 28 2007
By George F. Reinhart - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My job brings me in contact with many F1000 executives who have responsibility for CSR/citizenship/responsibility/sustainability/etc and I read this book to broaden my view of the topic. I found it to be interesting in its format, content and point of view. I highly recommend it if sustainability is taking on a strategic importance to your business and you need to hold your own when discussing the finer points of it all with senior management and boards. Or, you are a senior manager and need to reach decisions about the role of sustainability in your planning. Read this book. You won't regret the investment of time or money.

Easy read, straightforward Feb. 21 2006
By jennifer_76 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the first book I read on the topic of sustainability and I found it to be very approachable. The concepts were easy to grasp and it was written/formatted to be part example, part theory. I'd recommend it wholeheartedly.

A useful perspective Jan. 1 2008
By Jennifer L. Costley - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was required reading for a course in Environmental Intrapreneurism. The author's background in corporate management makes him ideally suited to help position environmental recommendations in the context of the corporation by helping to build the business case on a solid economic as well as "green" foundation. The writing is very straighforward and based on many interviews of corporate as well as non-profit leaders. The inclusion of quotation from many of the interviews (which seems at first to be a bit incidental) ultimately helps to reinforce the content.
Great Introduction to Sustainability Issues Sept. 3 2009
By Kristen Gunderson - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a great primer and had many examples that I could use to help show the cases for sustainability for clients that were considering implementing and/or growing their sustainability efforts. It is a quick read and drives home the point that a company's efforts should be complimentary to what they "do" as a business.
