Style/ Plot – The authors describe how sustainability contributes to business value by giving examples of studies and reports from various sources.
It provides recommendation on how companies can engage with customers, investors, communities and governments in embracing sustainability in every facet of their business practices.
The case studies provided allow the reader have the benefit of understanding the painstaking research that has gone into enabling an understanding of sustainability.
It was quite difficult for me to enjoy this particular book as it was research heavy. Well, maybe it is not written to be enjoyed. However, the research is really good.
Favourite Quote – “To bring about this transformational change, businesses must effectively and strategically identify, engage and energize all of their key stakeholders. No single business can hope to begin to be successful in the midst of the societal and environmental issues challenging the twenty-first century and beyond if they hold a narrow view of their company activities that includes only investors, customers and employees.”
Rating – 3/5
