The business guide to sustainability: practical strategies and tools for organizations
Sustainability promises both reduced environmental impacts and real cash savings for any organization ' be it a business, non-profit/NGO or government department. This easy-to-use manual ' clear, concise and logically laid out ' has been written by top business consultants. The authors desmystify 'sustainability', untangle the plethora of sustainability frameworks, tools and practices, and make it easy for the average person in any organization to move towards sustainability. Organized by sector and common organizational functions, the authors show how organizations can incorporate sustainability into their everyday work through the application of useful tools and self-assessments. Building on the success of the first edition, the second edition includes a new chapter on information and communication technology (ICT). The authors have also added many new facts, stories, practices and resources throughout the book to keep up with this rapidly emerging field and have updated their widely used SCORE sustainability assessment.
