    The Hardcover Toolchest for Sustainable Practice and Sustainability Practitioners

    "The boss came back from a seminar and said we need to be sustainable", "our green team needs to make the next step", "I need to provide better documentation to justify our sustainability efforts", are all statements that I hear routinely in presentations or as a part of general calls that come in. This book provides a valuable resource as it serves admirably as a primer for the unintiated, a problem solver for the overwhelmed and a tool chest for the seasoned practitioner.

    The fieldbook can provide a mirror to see how you are doing and/or a framework to organize what you are already doing. It probably won't be something that you peruse from cover to cover but it will give a range of options and information on all of the pages. The book also does a pretty good job of differentiating between "commodity" sustainability and "organizational differentiation and leadership" sustainability.

    There are very few books that I will recommend when asked where to start simply because organizations moving to the sustainability path are starting from such different places. This book provides a range of information to satisfy those diverse needs. It has all of the earmarks for being one of the books on your shelf with folded corners, highlights and tabs for the "go to" locations helping your organization explore, implement and share sustainable practices.

    A "must have" for anyone interested in the paradigm for successful business, now and in the future.

    This book is a complete guide to moving towards sustainability. Rarely do authors assemble a comprehensive resource to reference at every stage of creating a more sustainable organization. The information is backed up by extensive research and is a great primary resource for understanding the characteristics and practices that successful businesses and organizations will have in the future. Whether you are starting a business or in an organization that is taking strides towards sustainability, this book must be within reach on your desk.

    It quickly becomes apparent that this isn't something you can digest and put back on the shelf. Truly it is a "fieldbook" and a staple reference for anyone interested in the area of sustainability. It is equally as powerful a tool for students or others who are interested in learning the components of sustainability, its integration, and why it will be the paradigm for successful business now and in the future.

    Great resource for sustainability professionals

    Theres a lot of books on sustainability out there now - which is great - but most of them stay on the surface. They simply tell interesting stories and review green business theories. This book digs deeper, going into the nuts and bolts and tells you how to develop and implement green business best practices. Its not for beginners! The level of detail is intense. But for you professionals who've tasted the gold in green business and are ready to develop a comprehensive program, this book is a great resource.

    Companies need a sustainability roadmap

    Companies need a sustainability roadmap<BR/><BR/>Having read The Sustainable Enterprise Fieldbook, it is clear that the authors are best positioned to help companies develop a realistic sustainability roadmap to support the triple bottom line of profits, people and the planet. The challenge ahead is to get this team in front of key HR decision-makers as well as President-elect Obama's transition staff. <BR/><BR/>Furthermore, sustainable business practices are one of the keys to sustaining the tourism industry. Partnering with business to protect our environment will help to preserve our treasured tourist destinations. While often overlooked, Tourism is a significant contributor to global economic development. I suggest getting in touch with these authors and obtaining a copy of their book for those who are serious about achieving a sustainable future.<BR/><BR/><BR/><BR/>Submitted by RoseAnn Alspektor<BR/>Whidbey & Camano Islands Tourism<BR/>
