Corporate Responsibility


The Past, Present, and Future of Alliances for Sustainable


David Grayson and Jane Nelson

l The first book to chronicle the progress and potential of business-led corporate responsibility


l Includes in-depth profiles of the most strategic, effective and long-standing coalitions

It is estimated that there are more than 110

national and international business-led corporate

responsibility coalitions. Given the size

and significance of these alliances, there is now

a critical need for an informed and balanced

analysis of their achievements, their progress,

and their potential.

In Corporate Responsibility Coalitions

authors David Grayson and Jane Nelson

explore the past, present, and future of these

coalitions in the first book on these alliances.

They consider the emergence of new

models of collective corporate action over the

past four decades; the increasing number of

these coalitions, their diversity and complexity;

and how they network with each other

and a broader set of institutions that promote

responsible business. Drawing on their careful

study, the authors light the way for the future

development of these influential collectives. In

addition, the book provides in-depth profiles of

the most strategic, effective and long-standing

coalitions, including: Business for Social

Responsibility; Business in the Community;

CSR Europe; Instituto Ethos; International

Business Leaders Forum; the UN Global Compact;

and the WBCSD.

This book will be required reading for key

supporters and potential partners of such coalitions

in companies, governments, international

development agencies, foundations, non-governmental

organizations, academic institutions

and think-tanks. It also aims to inspire a future

generation of leaders to be more aware of the

role of business as a partner in driving more

inclusive, green and responsible growth.

“David Grayson and Jane Nelson tell a story that too few know: the story of corporate-led

coalitions and the role that they play in redefining business in society. It is a story of social

innovation at its best. Understanding these powerful coalitions and learning as much as we

can from them will be essential to creating a more sustainable world.”

Cheryl Y. Kiser, Executive Director, The Lewis Institute & Babson Social Innovation Lab, Babson


“This book’s greatest value lies in its analysis of what is driving coalitions at this point in

time, and the potential they have in resetting corporate responsibility in the era ahead. Corporate

Responsibility Coalitions opens up the collective opportunity to innovate just in time

to provide the business community with an instrument for building sustainable business.”

A Frank Conversation about Sustainability

John R. Ehrenfeld and Andrew J. Hoffman

l A remarkable conversation between teacher and student as they discuss

how to create a sustainable world

l Sustainability thought leaders Ehrenfeld and Hoffman sketch out a plan of

the road to a flourishing future

This astonishing book invites you into a conversation

between a teacher, John R. Ehrenfeld,

and his former student now professor,

Andrew J. Hoffman, as they discuss how to

create a sustainable world. Unlike virtually all

other books about sustainability, this one goes

beyond the typical stories that we tell ourselves

about repairing the environmental damages of

human progress.

Through their dialogue and essays that open

each section, the authors uncover two core facets

of our culture that drive the unsustainable,

unsatisfying and unfair social and economic

machines that dominate our lives. First, our

collective model of the way the world works

cannot cope with the inherent complexity of

today’s highly connected, high-speed reality.

Second, our understanding of human behaviour

is rooted in this outdated model. Driven by

the old guard, sustainability has become little

more than a fashionable idea. As a result, both

business and government are following the

wrong path – at best applying temporary, less

unsustainable solutions that will fail to leave

future generations in better shape.

To shift the pendulum, this book tells a new

story, driven by being and caring, as opposed

to having and needing, rooted in the beauty of

complexity and arguing for the transformative

cultural shift that we can make based on

our collective wisdom and lived experiences.

Then, the authors sketch out a plan of the

road to a flourishing future, a change in our

consumption and a new approach to understanding

and acting.

There is no middle ground; without serious

change at the most basic level, we will

continue to head down a false path. Indeed,

this book is a clarion call to action. Candid and

insightful, it leaves readers with cautious hope.

“These are unexpectedly deep and moving conversations about where we can go, and

where we must go, both as individuals and as a planet. This book is a hardheaded account

of the sacredness of the earth, and what that implies for our work and society.”

Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

“John Ehrenfeld’s thinking about our species and our place in the world is indeed a thing

of beauty, as Andrew Hoffman’s intelligent dialogue with him brings out on every page.”

James Gustave Speth, author of America the Possible: Manifesto for a New Economy

“This is a deeply illuminating conversation between two sustainability thought leaders on

whom I wish I had been able to eavesdrop. Now, happily and inspirationally, we all can.”

Big Bang Being

Developing The Sustainability Mindset

Isabel Rimanoczy

l Interviews with 16 business leaders provide a window on the sustainability mindset

l An opportunity to evolve as humans developing a new way of thinking and being on this planet

In this book we find how 16 business leaders

brought together their compassion, their caring

for others and the world, with their work.

What is seen publicly is the initiative, the

impact on the bottom line and the community,

or sometimes on the environment. Yet it is their

personal stories that can be most inspirational,

since they draw our attention to the fact that

amazing achievements start in simple ways,

with just the thinking of one individual.

The interviews, however, were only the

beginning of the journey. The lessons of the

interviews made it possible to identify how

we can all develop a sustainability mindset: in

other words, the thinking and the being that

can take us from breakdown to breakthrough

on this planet.

Part I presents the 16 leaders, their story and

their initiatives. Part II offers two dimensions

underlying the way these leaders championed

the initiatives: the Thinking and the Being.

Part III explores why sustainability change is

so slow, and addresses the values and beliefs

that anchor our Western Weltanschauung. Part

IV looks at the alternatives that we have to

convert our unsustainable values into opportunities

that will permit humanity to thrive and

to break through the obstructions that keep

us in stasis. And Part V takes us beyond the

tipping point, and presents us with an opportunity

to evolve as humans developing a new

way of thinking and being on this planet. This

transformation is so radical and significant that

the author calls it the Big Bang Being.

“This is an ambitious and admirable book.”

Harry Strachan, Former Professor at INCAE and Harvard Business School; Director Emeritus,

Bain & Co.

“Anybody who has worked in the sustainability field for as long as I have has often asked

themselves a key question, which Isabel Rimanoczy also poses in Big Bang Being: Why is

the pace of change so glacial? And a key part of the answer, as she explains, is that we are

dealing not just with vested interests but with vested emotions, vested behaviours, vested

psychology and vested cultures. Changing all of these will be an intergenerational task, but

important clues on how it can best be done can be found within.”

Placing Sustainability at the Heart of Management


l Real-world examples from PRME signatories

Oceania, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa

Since the inception of the United Nations Global

Compact-sponsored initiative Principles for

Responsible Management Education (PRME) in

2007, there has been increased debate over how

to adapt management education to best meet

the demands of the 21st-century business environment.

While consensus has been reached by

the majority of globally focused management

education institutions that sustainability must

be incorporated into management education

curricula, the relevant question is no longer

why management education should change, but


Although the PRME initiative is set to

increase to 1,000 signatories by 2015, it is

equally important for PRME to cultivate

actively engaged participants. Therefore, the

next step is for current participants to transition

from a global learning community to an

action community. For this purpose, the PRME

Secretariat invited a small group of experts

to coordinate an Inspirational Guide for the

Management Education, the official platform

for management-related Higher Education

Institutions (HEIs) at both the Global Compact

Rio+20 Corporate Sustainability Forum and the

UN Conference on Sustainable Development –

Guide answers the most frequently asked questions

concerning the implementation of PRME

by highlighting real-world examples from the

most engaged signatories.

The exercise has proven successful, and this

institutions, representing 25 countries across

East and Africa. They are the real actors in

this effort, and their stories are truly inspirational.

Their experiences are classified into

six sections, which address the Six Principles

of PRME (Purpose, Values, Method, Research,

Partnership, and Dialogue) as well as important

related aspects, such as how to get started, how

to successfully report on PRME adoption, and

so on. The full richness of experiences set forth

new generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex challenges faced by business and

[2nd edition]

Reclaiming Pragmatism for the Practice of Sustainable


F. Byron (Ron) Nahser PhD

l Reclaim pragmatism in order to better understand the reality we operate in

l A practical philosophy that calls into question our outworn assumptions

the Greenleaf


for Responsible

Management Education


book series

It’s not what we know, but how we learn.

Learning to Read the Signs reclaims pragmatism:

an activity of thought involving four

parts: Investigation, Hypothesis, Action and

Testing. It is a method of interpretation or

inquiry which offers a way to better understand

the reality in which we operate, to think

critically and creatively, to make the best use

of all our talents. So what are the signs telling

us? Where are we headed and why? Why are

things going the way they are? What is our


Examples abound of companies and organizations

that have failed to “read the signs”:

the automobile and the financial services

industries are obvious examples. Doing business

successfully in the 21st century means

becoming aware of the filters that modify and

limit business vision in our culture, leading

to short-term reactive thinking. With today’s

unprecedented challenges, learning to read the

signs is a business imperative.

This is not a how-to book in the sense that

it provides ten easy answers to everyday business

problems. The help it gives is much more

profound. This book outlines a mode of inquiry

that can be used to solve cognitive as well as

ethical questions. Nahser shows us that often

we do not even know the right question to

ask, that we must start by trusting our doubts

and seeing where they lead, so that we can

begin to ask the right questions. He shows that

a practical philosophy can call into question

our outworn assumptions, open up new lines

in inquiry, and lead to conclusions we never

imagined at the beginning of the process –

conclusions not just about what to do next, but

about our larger purposes, those frameworks

that give us meaning and direction.

In this long-overdue and radical update to

his seminal book, Ron Nahser turns his attention

to how pragmatism can be applied by

business to create both success and a better

world for all.

“Ron Nahser’s remarkable effort to resurrect this profound philosophy [of pragmatism] in the

business world is a bold and noble move and, when applied effectively, will bring forth better,

more significant decisions that will enhance both our physical and our spiritual well-being.”

Dr Stephen R. Covey, author, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

A Business Fable on Clean Energy

Dennis Posadas

l A “Green Thinking Fable”, highlighting the most important debate of our


l Accessible and readable

l Gets the general reader up to speed on the renewables versus fossil fuels


Renewable energy versus fossil fuels: the

debate on rages on, worldwide. At stake is

nothing less than the protection of our planet

from the ravages of climate change. But the

costs involved in making the switch to clean

energy are daunting. How do we pay for solar

and wind energy? Do we scrap all our gasoline-driven

autos? How do we move forward?

Although the importance of this topic is hard

to overstate, it nevertheless consistently fails

to engage at the level that it so patently needs

to. This is what has led technology expert

and seasoned commentator Dennis Posadas to

approach the issues in a new and intriguing

way. Posadas understands that we respond best

to narratives, and that is why he has written

what he describes as a “Green Thinking Fable”.

In this fable, we meet Daniel, a young

graduate of the fictional Oriental College, who

is thrust into a debate between José, an oil

man, and Professor Ruiz, an advocate of clean

energy. We follow the lines of argument as

Daniel’s awareness increases, and he experiences

a paradigm shift in his thinking. We see

how his short-term outlook focusing on the

cost of renewable energy evolves into longterm

thinking about the cost of not making the

shift to renewables.

Posadas’s business fable puts the issues in

front of the general reader in an engaging

and digestible way. It covers concepts such as

solar, wind, electric vehicles, waste to energy,

feed-in-tariffs, carbon tax, intermittent sources,

cost of fossil fuels, health impact of fossil

fuel use, energy efficiency, and other relevant

topics necessary in understanding this debate.

The story and characters may be fictional, but

the situations and the technology discussions

are based on current facts. Decide for yourself

where you stand on the renewables versus

fossil fuels debate, and discuss this story with

your friends and colleagues.

Greenergized! is a much-needed route into the

issues surrounding the most serious debate our

generation faces. And it pulls off the brilliant

trick of being highly readable at the same time.

“For those new to the energy discussion, this easy-to-understand approach is a great introduction

to some complex issues.”

Eric Spiegel, CEO, Siemens USA

“. . . does a great job of relating the development of renewables to efficiency innovation and

improved systems to enable consumers and power providers to benefit. It is the best job I

have seen of any clean energy fictional narrative in relating concepts like early adopters,

smart grid, consumer/provider sharing of benefits, etc.”

Challenges and Opportunities for Social


Nick Sireau

l Latest developments in the world of rare

disease entrepreneurship

l From business and patient perspectives

new title

There are 7,000 rare diseases affecting 6%–8%

of the global population. That’s 3.5 million

people in the UK alone. Yet only 200 rare

diseases have approved treatments. In recent

years, there has been a surge of interest from

business and social entrepreneurs in the field of

health – including looking at ways to treat rare

disease patients better and faster.

This book presents some of the latest developments

in the world of rare disease entrepreneurship

from a global group of experts. It

examines the topic from the business angle,

considering the drug development process and

providing case studies of successful orphan

drug enterprises. It also looks at rare diseases

from the perspective of the patient, analysing

the growing rare disease patient movement, a

successful patient group that uses social enterprise

techniques, and chapters on key requirements

for helping patients with rare diseases

through registries and centres of excellence.

The book will be an essential toolkit for

social and business entrepreneurs who are

interested in the world of rare/orphan diseases.

It has the rigour of an academic publication,

along with the clarity of a lay publication. An

original and timely book, Rare Diseases will

help to add knowledge and awareness to a

vastly under-published subject.

“William Frederick has given us the most important business book of the new millennium,

and it could not be more urgently required. He is our economic Copernicus, introducing a

model of business that is radical yet instantly definitive. Students, professors, and, above

all, business leaders must learn and apply the principles of Natural Corporate Management,

lest they continue to limit their success in the face of the most fundamental forces bearing

on the corporation.”

Healing Capitalism

Five Years in the Life of Business, Finance

and Corporate Responsibility

Jem Bendell and Ian Doyle

l Key events, issues and trends in corporate

responsibility during the first decade of the

21st century

l A vision and practice of a new form of capitalism

l Drawn on Lifeworth’s annual CR reviews

The global response from business to social and

environmental issues during the past decade

has created a corporate responsibility movement.

But what has been the impact of this

movement? The financial crisis that began in

2007 has led more and more people to question

the fundamentals of our economic system.

new title

Now, some within the corporate responsibility

movement are developing a vision and

practice of a new form of capitalism, one that

will require collective action to achieve.

Bendell and Doyle draw on Lifeworth’s

annual reviews of corporate responsibility and

propose a wellness framework whereby business

is a conduit for enhancing life and the

systems that support it. They explain how business

leaders, stakeholders and related academe

now need to experiment with new models that

address the fundamental flaws of contemporary

capitalism, including monetary systems, enterprise

ownership, and regulation. This book will

be a fantastic resource for business libraries, as

it records and analyses key events, issues and

trends in corporate responsibility during the

first decade of the 21st century. It is a sequel

and companion to Bendell’s previous work, The

Corporate Responsibility Movement (Greenleaf

Publishing, 2009).

Sustainability in Fashion

and Textiles

Values, Design, Production and Consumption

Edited by Miguel Angel Gardetti and Ana Laura Torres

l A substantial and wide-ranging collection of current analysis

l Covers management, value chain, materials, production processes, consumption, disposal,

innovation and design

The textile industry – the production of clothing,

fabrics, thread, fibre and related products –

plays a significant part in the global economy.

It also frequently operates with disregard to its

environmental and social impacts. The textile

industry uses large quantities of water and

outputs large quantities of waste. As for social

aspects, many unskilled jobs have disappeared

in regions that rely heavily on these industries.

And textile industry companies, faced with

fierce international competition, are increasingly

failing to offer job security. This is without

even considering the informal-sector work

proliferating both in developing and developed

countries. Child labour persists within this sector

despite growing pressure to halt it.

Fashion demands continuous consumption.

In seeking to own the latest trends consumers

quickly come to regard their existing garments

as inferior, if not useless. “Old” items become

unwanted as quickly as new ones come into

demand. This tendency towards disposability

results in the increased use of resources and

thus the accelerated accumulation of waste. It

is obvious to many that current fashion industry

practices are in direct competition with

sustainability objectives; yet this is frequently

overlooked as a pressing concern.

However, sustainability in the sector has

been gaining attention in recent years from

those who believe that it should be held

accountable for the pressure it places on

the individual, as well as its contribution to

increases in consumption and waste disposal.

This book takes a wide-screen approach to

the topic, covering, among other issues: sustainability

and business management in textile

and fashion companies; value chain management;

use of materials; sustainable production

processes; fashion, needs and consumption;

disposal; and innovation and design.

The book will be essential reading for

researchers and practitioners in the global

fashion business.

“The broad range of contributions from across the spectrum of scholarly exploration and

analysis reflected in the[se] pages . . . are complete with a sense of the lively, ethical and

reflective nature of the subject. They show many threads in the web of relationships at

play. For me they touch on the emergence of key themes that show the increasing sophistication

of the debate: that systemic change is an essential part of the dialogue; that consumption

must be grappled with head-on; and that solutions are not only technological in

Environmental Ethics

An Introduction and Learning Guide

Edited by Kees Vromans, Rainer Paslack,

Gamze Yücel Isildar, Rob de Vrind and

Jürgen Walter Simon

l An ethical training manual

l Based on the pioneering work of the

Env-Ethics Project

Today we are becoming more aware of the

importance of and our responsibilities towards

environmental protection. The causes of our

problems are anthropogenic. The number of

people working in what might be termed “environmental

industries” or with environmental

responsibilities in their day-to-day work has

mushroomed. In many cases, however, individuals

charged with protecting the environment

have a set of empirical priorities: what is done,

rather than moral priorities which consider

what should be done. The need to harmonize

environmental knowledge with ethical behaviour

and thus achieve behavioural change and

the internalization of environmentally ethical

values has never been more urgent.

This book, developed as part of an EU

recent new title

programme to diffuse the

application of environmental

ethics to decision-making

on pollution control, is

a response to the need for a

restatement of environmental

ethics and for a code of

behaviour and set of values

that can be internalized and

adopted to guide the actions

by individuals at the sharp

end of protecting the environment:

decision-makers and environmental

experts/executives/staff working in municipalities

and public/government organizations

throughout the EU and Turkey. It is nothing

short of an ethical training manual that will

guide environmental experts/decision-makers

in making sound judgements and decisions

and will act as a bridge between environmental

knowledge and environmental behaviour.

The book will be essential reading for

decision-makers and experts working in local

authorities and governmental organizations

with responsibility for environmental protection:

for both graduate and postgraduate

students in environment-related disciplines and

for vocational education teachers with a focus

on the environment.

Changing Business from

the Inside Out

A Treehugger’s Guide to Working in Corporations

Timothy J. Mohin

l A manual for every CSR professional by a veteran corporate responsibility practitioner

l How to steer the corporate supertanker toward doing good for people and our planet

A fascinating roadmap to the corporate responsibility

and sustainability field, from beginning

a career, to forming a program, to navigating

the complicated politics of a corporation.

Mohin likens the corporate treehugger role

to “being the designated driver at the corporate

cocktail party”. Throughout his book, he

argues strongly that activists can accomplish

more for the planet and society by serving as

a voice of responsibility within the corporation

rather than protesting outside the factory

gates. The CR practitioner has an essential role

in bringing ethical and sustainable values to

the C-suite.

“essential reading for anyone who wants to build a meaningful career”

Aron Cramer, CEO, Business for Social Responsibility

“This is one of the most valuable and useful guides to working in CR written to date. Tim

uses his extensive experience working in organisations such as the EPA, Intel, Apple, and

AMD to provide practical tools and advice to not only those seeking to enter the sector but

also to seasoned CR professionals and business leaders . . . The fact that this book is written

by an insider, someone who has implemented these types of activities in some of the

world’s leading corporations, sets it apart from many of the other books that speak to case

studies and theories. This guide is a recommended must-read as it inspires the reader to

action with its invaluable insights and lessons learned.”

Embedded Sustainability

The Next Big Competitive Advantage

Chris Laszlo and Nadya Zhexembayeva

l What if sustainability was embedded into the DNA of your organization?

l The incorporation of environmental, health, and social value into the heartbeat of the product

life-cycle with no trade-off in price or quality

Many companies “bolt on” sustainability as an

afterthought to their core strategies. They trumpet

green initiatives and social philanthropy

which lie at the margins of the business, with

symbolic wins that inadvertently highlight the

unsustainability of the rest of their activities.

Today’s ecological and social pressures

require a different business response – one that

existing strategy frameworks fail adequately to


This book shows how companies can better

leverage global challenges for enduring profit

and sustained growth. At its best, embedded

sustainability is invisible, similar to quality. In

addition to delivering socially and environmentally

conscious products for consumers, it

is capable of considerably motivating employees.

Most of all, it enables smart companies to

create even more value for both their shareholders

and stakeholders.

“. . . truly stretches our minds and turns sustainable value into a compelling direction which

is within our capability . . . both delightful and frightful . . . It is a highly intelligent (and

intellectual) roadmap of the gearshift in corporate thinking and actions that are needed to

transform sustainability bandaids into sustainable business.”

Elaine Cohen, CSRwire

“Laszlo and Zhexembayeva show clearly that the defining characteristic of the successful

21st-century corporation will be its ability to embed sustainability in every fiber of its

being. And, even more importantly, embedded sustainability will hold the key to future

profit and value creation.”

Stuart L. Hart, author of Capitalism at the Crossroads

“In this elegantly written book, authors Chris Laszlo and Nadya Zhexembayeva make a

very compelling case for what is effectively not only a new business model and new business

paradigm, but indeed a business imperative.”

Jean-Pierre Lehmann, Professor of International Political Economy, IMD; Founding Director,

from which future leaders of business will surely emerge.”

Putting the Poor First

How Base-of-the-Pyramid Ventures Can Learn from

Development Approaches

Piera Waibel

l The first comprehensive study rigorously examining BoP ventures from a bottom-up development


l The reconnection of development approaches with BoP strategies

l With three in-depth case studies and eight companies participating in a survey

Development researchers argue that the poor

should no longer be viewed as the target of

poverty reduction efforts, but as partners in,

and an asset to, the development process.

So-called Next Generation, or BoP 2.0,

strategies can bring companies and their target

groups closer together. The goal is to co-create

new business models as well as product and

service solutions together with the target

group. Integrating BoP into the innovation

process – be it in terms of idea generation,

product/service development, production or

distribution/marketing – is seen as way to

increase not only the impact on poverty alleviation,

but also the benefits to the company.

Putting the Poor First examines the applicability

of different elements in the bottom-up

development literature to the innovation process

of BoP ventures. It unveils connections

between the two concepts and builds a theoretical

base for the case study research. With three

in-depth case studies and eight companies

participating in a survey, the current state and

experiences of businesses applying a bottom-up

development perspective with BoP ventures in

Latin America and the Caribbean is analysed.

This is a key book for BoP researchers and

practitioners on the ground. The reconnection

of development approaches with BoP strategies

puts the poor first.

“In this important new book, Piera Waibel has zeroed in on the key challenge when it

comes to generating successful BoP businesses – how to effectively embed value propositions

and business models. The first ten years of BoP business was all about cost reduction

and business model innovation; the next ten years will be all about co-creation and

bottom-up innovation”

Stuart L. Hart, author of Capitalism at the Crossroads

“I believe Dr Waibel’s research provides a valuable resource for the private sector in proactively

promoting development among the poor by listening to their voices.”

Miguel Angel Gardetti, Center for Study of Corporate Sustainability, Argentina

their business model innovation processes in view of enabling ‘win–win’ solutions at

The Three Levels of


Elena Cavagnaro and George Curiel


l The missing link in current debates around sustainability

l A holistic approach to sustainable development, which starts and ends with the human being

l With an in-depth discussion of the theoretical background of sustainable development this is

an excellent primer for students

The authors frame their ideas around the three

levels of sustainability (TLS) framework, which

is placed firmly in its historical context, via

informed discussions on the history of economics,

business-and-environment, social development,

the corporation and the profit principle,

CSR, and measurement and reporting. The

approach encompasses societal, organizational,

and individual levels; and, by looking through

the lens of how sustainability has evolved,

provides a roadmap for producing the kind of

leaders necessary for sustainable development.

This book has been designed as both a text for

students as well as those already in management

and leadership positions in the private,

public, or non-profit sectors; and will also

prove invaluable to those wishing to familiarize

themselves with sustainability.

“This book should be on the bookshelf of any management practitioner or management

researcher with a genuine interest in sustainability. And if I were to pick a textbook for a

course on sustainability or corporate social responsibility The Three Levels of Sustainability

would definitely be my first choice.”

Prof. Dr Aimé Heene, Ghent University, Antwerp University, College of Europe Bruges

“The book combines realism and intellectual precision with hope and a fundamental faith

in the possibilities of humanity. It significantly enlarges our vision of sustainability and it

is a required read for any thinking person who wants to understand the roots of today’s

difficult relationship between the economy and the other spheres of our life.”

Nicola Misani, Assistant Professor of Management, Università Bocconi, Italy

“A must-read for leaders and policy advisers of all disciplines.”

Paul Comenencia, Diplomat and former Chamber of Commerce Executive

“This book tells us not only where to go but also gives us the roadmap of how to get there.

The latter is particularly valuable as the road will be rough and difficult.”

Frans N. Stokman, Professor of Social Science Methodology, University of Groningen

controversial topics . . . analyzed from a variety of different perspectives and disciplines,

and yet producing an engaging, readable, and practical text.”

aims. Innovations required

for sustainability often

come from SMEs and so

the role of the entrepreneur

is key to their success.

Section I examines the

nexus in detail focusing on

system-oriented connectivity

between sustainability,

innovation and entrepreneurship.

Section II looks

at how to nurture corporate entrepreneurship

for sustainability. Section III considers “mature”

industries such as automotives, chemicals and

electronics. Section IV examines the nexus

through the lens of developing countries in

Africa. Section V concentrates on SMEs. In

section VI the EIS nexus is approached from

a network perspective and focuses on interorganizational

partnerships, which are often an

important facilitator or spark for EIS initiatives.

This long-needed book

provides practical steps

from the world’s leading

experts on how to set up

a microfranchise, from

recruiting franchisees,

to building a brand and

a supply chain. It gives

case studies of successful

microfranchises, told by

the enterprises themselves.

It continues with a theoretical analysis of the

place of microfranchising within global social

entrepreneurship. It ends with a look at the

future for microfranchising, with recommendations

for development.

Edited by the former CEO of SolarAid, which

created the Sunny Money microfranchise, the

book brings together academics and practitioners

to provide context, analysis and practical

advice to guide any entrepreneur, NGO, business

or government interested in setting up their own

microfranchise scheme.

How Do Investors Really Use Corporate

Responsibility Information?

Rory Sullivan

l Aims to get reporters and the investment community

speaking a common language

l Written by one of the world’s leading experts

on responsible investment

There is a striking lack of understanding among

companies of investors’ interests. So, despite

many companies identifying investors as one of

the critical audiences for their corporate responsibility

(CR) reports, most investors see these

reports as irrelevant to their investment decisionmaking.

This books, addressing the “dialogue of

the deaf” between companies and their investors

on CR issues, is one of the most important books

to be written on CR over

the past decade.

companies and investors on the critical issue of corporate

reach consensus on these specifications? What

if our sustainable technological

other problems or create

new ones? And, because

is all about the long-term

consequences of our

the effects of modifying

existing landscapes, infrastructures

and patterns of

life? How could we be sure in advance that the

changes that new technologies bring will make

our society more sustainable? These dilemmas

and paradoxes are the subject of this provocative


Case studies ask: What articulations of sustainability

played a role in the design process?

What sustainability effects did this technology

lead to? Who was affected, where, and when?

Could the designer have foreseen these consequences?

How did the designer anticipate them?

How was societal interaction dealt with during

the design process?

activities will certainly find the book useful as a basic reference guide.

Organizations with existing CSR initiatives will also benefit from this

to increase the credibility of specific CSR claims. Before investing a

Sustainable Resource


Global Trends, Visions and Policies

Stefan Bringezu and Raimund Bleischwitz

l Visions of sustainable resource use

l Based on exhaustive research by Germany’s

Wuppertal Institute

Looking at material flows, industrial and societal

metabolism and their implications for the

economy, this important

new book provides radical

perspectives on how the

global economy should

use natural resources in

intelligent ways that maximize

well-being without

destroying life-supporting

ecosystems. It presents

a vision of a potentially

sustainable future and the

fundamental elements necessary for the sustainable

management of the Earth’s resources.

“This book will make an important contribution to achieving the goal of a 21st century Green Economy.

It puts natural resources centre stage backed by a vision and compelling policy options.”

Achim Steiner, UN Under-Secretary General and UN Environment Programme Executive Director

Sustainable Growth

Economic and Global Policy Issues

Edited by Raimund Bleischwitz, Paul J.J.

Welfens and ZhongXiang Zhang

l Why resources are back on the agenda

l A comprehensive overview of global issues of

raw materials supply and resource use

Written by international experts in their respective

fields, Sustainable Growth and Resource

Productivity provides a comprehensive overview

of global issues of raw materials supply and

resource use. It also introduces new views and

perspectives on the sustainable

growth of emerging

economies and develops

a rationale for a new

resource economics.

This book emphasizes

why resources are back on

the agenda: first, because

of their fundamental economic

role in technological

progress and long-term

prosperity; second, because deficits in raw material

markets are now intertwined with deficits

in the financial markets; and, third, because the

sustainable management of natural resources is a

crucial element in responses to new global challenges

such as climate change.

It concludes with the positing of a new theory

of resource economics: an emerging sub-discipline

that puts resources at its heart.
