The Essential Management Resource for Integrating Sustainability into Corporate Culture
Integrate Sustainability into Corporate Culture
Used as the centerpiece for a popular corporate sustainability class taught on campus and online at Harvard University, Mainstreaming Corporate Sustainability provides students and professionals alike with an overview of the most valuable management tools and resources. Exploring sustainability from a corporate perspective with a focus on the global marketplace, it covers all three responsibilities of sustainability: environmental stewardship, social well-being, and economic prosperity.
Pathways to Success provides case company examples that complement the Mainstreaming book and includes questions for discussion and additional resources.

- A great balance between application of the tools/metrics/frameworks and the understanding of the philosophical underpinnings.
