Product Description


'Adrian Henriques has done it again ... Clear and well-written, the text will stimulate and challenge practitioners, students, policy-makers and academics.' Professor R.H. Gray, Director of The Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research, School of Management, The Gateway University of St Andrews 'There may be a temptation to blame the corporate sector for many of the world's problems, but ultimately it's a split of responsibility between the life style choices of individual consumers, the state and the corporation. To address this subject Adrian Henriques reviews an array of methods to try and measure the social outcome of individual companies in an attempt to answer the frequently asked question 'What's a company for?'' Dr Chris Tuppen, BT Director of Sustainable Development 'In developing policy and standards for business activity, social impact has long been the disadvantaged sibling of environmental and economic impacts of companies. Henriques goes a long way toward rectifying this disparity by providing rich and varied perspectives on the definition, measurement and assessment of the social footprint of commercial activity Along the way, he takes us well beyond the boundaries of conventional CSR, raises fundamental questions about the purpose of the corporation, and challenges both companies and stakeholders to rethink their interdependency in new and provocative ways.' Allen L. White, Co-Founder, Global Reporting Initiative; Senior Fellow, Tellus Institute 'Adrian Henriques has done it again. He has taken a refreshingly novel angle on an important issue in need of urgent attention. This much-needed attempt to move on from much of the staleness in the CSR debate is broad and wide-ranging. Clear and well-written, the text will stimulate and challenge practitioners, students, policy-makers and academics. My guess is that my personal reaction of positive response and outraged disagreement in roughly equal measure will be a fairly common one: in this regard it succeeds masterfully in advancing this debate in a challenging manner.' Professor R.H. Gray, Director of The Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research, School of Management, The Gateway University of St Andrews 'As we cannot stretch the surface of the planet, we cannot extend time. Space and time are the ultimate physical ingredients to anything we do. Measuring, therefore, our time footprint (or social footprint) becomes a key ingredient for any sustainability assessment, and I am thrilled that Adrian Henriques is exploring the time dimension as a metric for social impact.' Mathis Wackernagel, Global Footprint Network President

Format: Hardcover
This book will equip you intellectually and practically to tackle the challenges of doing business in a more sustainable way. Adrian Henriques draws on his deep knowledge of social economics and his years of experience in helping companies to get a grip on what they are doing to society and the planet. He walks the reader through the theory and practice of understanding all of the company's impacts -social, economic and environmental. Without this understanding, any attempt at a CSR programme is a shot in the dark.

This book should be read carefully and thoughtfully, but will also be the sort of book you want on your desk...I keep referring back to my dog-eared review copy. It is not an easy checklist of things to do, but pushes the reader to really get their head around the wide-reaching impacts of business.
