Great book on sustainability and responsibility and how 21st century businesses need these in order to succed.
Filled with explanations, clear differences made between blunt PR, real sustainable strategies and green washing, as well as examples on companies doing the right thing.

Six months after this book was published, Jeffrey Hollender was dismissed from the company he founded, Seventh Generation. I would not be surprised if the vision of corporate direction which Mr. Hollender articulates in the book directly impacted the Board of Directors' decision to look for a new leader who would have "unambiguous authority and accountability to the Seventh Generation Board and its shareholders."

How can businesses approach sustainability? What does it take, and what are the advantages that come with it? Hollender and Breen dwell upon these questions in The Responsibility Revolution and define six core principles that can serve as guidelines for companies. For each core principle, several company examples are elucidated, which demonstrate how diversely sustainability can be approached and alongside allow a varied reading experience.

Shelves: negocios
Contiene muchos casos de empresas que entregan productos físicos y el proceso de revolución que han seguido para tratar de hacer los productos con menos contaminantes y cancerígenos. También incluyen información de procesos para utilizar menos recursos, reciclaje y utilización de nuevos productos.

Great case studies on real corporate sustainability moves instead of green washing/cause marketing. Lots of applicable takeaway points to bring back to offices. I recommend to everyone who works in a business--for-profit, for-benefit, or nonprofit!
