Overview

This Reader brings together, in one volume, the most important and innovative articles written on the interaction of business and the environment. The contributions - by some of the world's leading business and environmental consultants, academics and practitioners - have been selected as the result of a wide-ranging consultation process involving an advisory team of recognized experts in the field, to ensure that readers have the best and most useful selection possible.

This is an essential reference, not only for students in business schools, management studies and environmental courses, but for environmental managers and consultants and all those interested in 'greening' the business environment.
