What People are Saying About This

Elizabeth A. Corley

This is an excellent book that will make a valuable contribution to the literature on environmental policy, management, and sustainability. Chapter topics are policy relevant and timely.

Sheldon Kamieniecki

I have not seen a volume that brings together such important information on the topic of environmental sustainability as well as this one. An impressive effort, likely to attract a great deal of attention in the environmental policy field.

Michael M. Crow

Steven Cohen's explication of "sustainability management' advances the discourse on a concept that urgently requires differentiation from environmental policy, discussions of which sometimes reduce the complexities of our multidimensional embeddedness on the planet to a spurious dichotomy between environmental protection and economic development. Cohen makes the case that sustainability has become integral to management. His book is critical reading for policymakers and practitioners inacademia, business, industry, and government.

William Eimicke

Steve Cohen is becoming the Peter Drucker of sustainability management. This book will become the bible for teachers, CEOs, and human resources executives in the public and private sectors seeking to make their organization work better and waste less.
