Product description

Review

Corporations are under increasing pressure from customers, investors, employees, legislators, banks, and insurance companies to embrace social and environmental responsibility. But Wall Street demands quarterly results, a stringent return on investment, and a short payback period. Up until now, there's been very little evidence expressed in business language showing the benefits of the "triple bottom line" relevant to the short and long-term priorities of senior executives. So how can these seemingly incompatible goals be accomplished at the same time?

Written in the pragmatic language of business leaders by a senior manager at Big Blue, The Sustainability Advantage shows that the business benefits of sustainable development strategies are quantifiable and real - and executives do not have to be tree-hugging environmental activists to reap these benefits.

Each of the seven sustainability strategies presented in this practical guide are easy to grasp, yet powerful enough to lead to significant business opportunities, from reducing hiring and retention costs and improving productivity, to decreasing expenses and increasing revenue and shareholder value. Executives will especially appreciate a unique spreadsheet into which they can insert their own data to see for themselves whether the business case for sustainable initiatives is a profitable one for their company.

About the Author

Bob Willard uses his senior management experience from his 34-year career at IBM to create a business case for corporate sustainability strategies. He has delivered hundreds of keynote presentations on the subject to corporations, consultants, academics and NGOs world-wide. He is also the author of The Sustainability Advantage and The Next Sustainability Wave and has produced The Business Case for Sustainability DVD.
