The tide is turning. In recent years, corporations of all sizes and orientations have become more sensitive to social issues and stakeholder concerns. They are striving to become better corporate citizens. The best practices in corporate sustainability performance are no longer the exclusive domain of companies like Ben & Jerry's or The Body Shop, as they were a decade ago; now, large, multinational companies like G.E. and Wal-Mart are leading the way with significant financial and organizational commitments to social and environmental issues. However, good intentions aren't enough. Whether motivated by concern for society and the environment, government regulation, stakeholder pressures, or economic profit, managers and strategists need to continue making significant changes to more effectively manage their social, economic, and environmental impacts - and to remain competitive. The guidance they need to do that is in this book.In "Making Sustainability Work", Marc Epstein has built on his influential and highly respected previous work on implementing and measuring corporate sustainability. He has now produced the ultimate "how-to-do-it" guide for corporate leaders, strategists, academics, sustainability consultants, and anyone else with an interest in actually putting ideas into practice.With a growing number of corporate leaders asking for urgent help in "getting this done," the timing of the book could not be better. The book blends Epstein's many years of academic work, the key work of other thought leaders, field research with companies, and brand new case examples to address the dilemmas and challenges managers face when engaging with sustainability. Epstein's work on sustainability measurement is the most extensive ever published, focusing on organizing, costing, performance, risk, and leadership. The book provides almost 100 company examples, a range of tools, and a practical management model that will be invaluable for those attempting to implement, manage, and measure sustainability efforts.
