From the Publisher"Ants, Galileo, and Gandhi provides a good sampling of the kind of thinking and action that will be needed to pull our world from its ever-spiraling social, economic, and environmental problems. The authors offer a glimpse of what it will take: revolutionary innovation, deep social consciousness, and new adaptations of natural systems. For those who want to see business as it should be, this is the book to read."
"Despite a decade of high-level talking, and all sorts of new business initiatives, sustainability remains an elusive concept for both businesspeople and policy-makers. It needn't be like that. This is a book that cuts through the confusion, combining the hard science of sustainability with practical, real-life business experience. Continuing confusion about sustainability is not an option. We urgently need to start engaging with the real thing."
"The outline of the corporation of the future is just starting to emerge. We owe a debt of gratitude to the pioneering work of Ray Anderson, Matt Klein, and others affiliated with The Natural Step for bringing this outline into sharper focus."
"The work described in this book is essential reading for the 21st-century business leader wanting to know about the next important trends. Ants, Galileo, and Gandhi argues that new designs for all enterprises — from large, medium, and small businesses, through financial service sector institutions — are becoming clear. This shift turns on integration of environmental and social issues into business strategy and operations and the pathways for taking these issues seriously while running a successful company."
