Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very well written clearly thought out book.This very readable book delivers all that it promises and perhaps much more. The book definitely has the potential to enlighten the readers about the issues surrounding sustainability and offers explanations for readers to understand the broad theme of corporate sustainability. At last this book comprehensively reveals the true facts about how to put the sustainability in action and how to translate strategy into the sustainability performance indicators.

Comprehensive coverage of the subject. Experienced authors who refer to practice and research throughout the book. Excellent for a newcomer and well worth looking at if you're less new to the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough high level discussion of the topic. 6 Jan. 2015
By Michael Brochstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very thorough discussion of the topic. Mostly high level (conceptual) but does include a multiple of real-world examples

FWIW, this book will take longer to read than you might expect. There are ~273 pages of text but note that the typeface size is small and the lines are densely packed together (little inter-line white space). A more typical layout with a larger typeface size for text and lines not as densely packed would probably create a book with 400+ pages of text.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent part of your sustainability library 5 Feb. 2015
By Dr. Keith Thomsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. Thorough, but with a real focus on documenting and detailing what makes, or breaks, a sustainability effort. My only small criticism is that the illustrations are in black and white (color would have made some of the diagrams, charts, illustrations and figures easier to read and understand), but this is a small thing. Overall, I recommend it very highly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good points but the authors obviously have no real business experience. 18 Jan. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The parts where he discusses how increasing sustainability can directly benefit a company are interesting and thought provoking but too many of their suggestions are based in an alternate reality. Here is but one of many examples, "Companies select their suppliers, distributors, joint-venture partners, licensees, and other business partners not only on the basis of price and quality but also on social, ethical, and environmental performance. Companies that embrace this principle set specific targets for utilizing indigenous, disadvantaged, or minority-owned businesses and use their purchasing power to encourage suppliers to improve their own social, environmental, and economic practices.". While I'm positive both the authors are bright it is painfully obvious they have never worked in a corporation.
