Managing sustainability is THE challenge of our time. It's not just a technical issue and not just a green issue. It is a management issue. A strong sustainability program requires commitment, which in turn demands effective leadership. Such leadership must draw on a solid knowledge base, the ability to manage resources wisely, identify sustainability opportunities, make difficult choices, and accept the challenge to lead, influence and persuade colleagues. This book attempts to cut through the ever-present hyperbole to offer practical steps which can be taken now to protect the world around us. Rich in case studies, it addresses a range of critical stewardship issues. Growing out of a keen desire to protect the earth, the text is designed to help management transform important information and critical leadership skills into enhancing socially responsible operations. Authors Hansen and Brown have also included contributions from several additional leading experts in the field.
