Sustainability is a process that demands co-operation rather than competition. This volume offers a variety of case studies that show how industry, managers, policy decision-makers, regional planners and stakeholders cope with the sustainability concept and what it means to them. Although any decision is made in very specific environments, some general guidelines, methods and tools are available to link business with sustainability.
