Booknews
A former engineer and manager at a multinational corporation, Davis argues that business must pursue a path of sustainable development and that it can thus be a major agent of innovation and change. Using examples from business and corporations that have to various degrees succeeded in implementing responsible practices, Davis analyzes the problems posed by conventional business practices and details strategies that managers, workers, consumers, and communities can use to bring about the needed changes.
