We are currently eating, sleeping and breathing a new found religion of everything ‘green’. At the very heart of responsibility is industry and commerce, with everyone now racing to create their ‘environmental’ business strategy. In line with this awareness, there is much discussion about the ‘green marketing opportunity’ as a means of jumping on this bandwagon. The Green Marketing Manifesto provides a roadmap on how to organize green marketing effectively and sustainably, whilst avoiding the bandwagon.
"John Grant has been a great help over the years in thinking about how to position and market the Ecologist magazine. He’s one of the few people I have met who understands both green issues and marketing and is able to fuse the two creatively and effectively."
—Zac Goldsmith, director of The Ecologist, co-chairman of The Quality of Life Group
"If green is to become truly mainstream, we’ll need companies of all sizes and sectors to find their way through the subtleties and complexities of the green marketplace, and John Grant’s Green Marketing Manifesto provides an excellent roadmap. It makes a clear and compelling case that green marketing isn’t an end unto itself, but rather a potent engine for creating business value through innovation, while fomenting genuine societal change."
—Joel Makower, Founder and Executive Editor, GreenBiz.com, and author of “Two Steps Forward” blog
"This book is essential reading for the growing numbers who are realising that good business can be good business (and that it comes from being good, not looking good)."
—Jamie Mitchell, managing director, innocent smoothies
"…[a]splendidly provocative and incredibly timely book … we need things conserved, shared, reused, recycled, slowed down and treasured at an ever deeper level. And that’s what this manifesto is all about!"
—Jonathan Porritt (from the foreword), co-founder Forum for the Future and Chairman of the UK
