Outlining the long-term corporate benefits, it examines the changes required to achieve true sustainability.
This timely and novel approach to a very topical subject, has been written by a team of well-known and respected international authors. It includes case studies, critical vignettes, boxed features, chapter summaries, and will be of particular interest to anyone studying or working in the areas of management, environmental studies, sustainability or organizational studies.
