Building Tomorrow's Company: A Guide to Sustainable Business Success
From the Dust Jacket: Building Tomorrow's Company is about a new and revolutionary phase in market-based capitalism. This new inclusive approach is about balancing short-term priorities and shareholder value with sustainability, corporate social responsibility and environmental accountability. The basic message is that if businesses are to succeed-or even survive-in the 21st century, they must take into account the social and environmental consequences of their activities. Packed with the latest research and including numerous international case studies, this book shows the reader how companies are building businesses that make equal sense to both shareholders and society. Topics include: the new economy; why attitudes are changing; sustainability; fresh perspectives on investment and governance; why purpose and values matter; engaging with stakeholders; measuring social and environmental performance; winning licences to operate; inclusive leadership; designing tomorrow's companies. Written in an accessible and practical style, Building Tomorrow's Company provides the reader with a unique insight into the changing attitudes and issues surrounding sustainability and the 'inclusive' approach to business.
