Eco-efficiency : the business link to sustainable development by Livio D DeSimone( )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 2,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book outlines the principles of eco-efficiency and presents case studies of their application from a number of international companies, including 3M and the Dow Chemical Company. It also discusses the value of partnerships - with other companies, business associations, communities, regulators, and environmental and other nongovernmental groups. In the conclusion, the authors argue that business must become more eco-efficient and that governments need to change the conditions under which business operates, including tax and regulatory regimes, to make them more conducive to eco-efficiency."--Jacket
Financing change : the financial community, eco-efficiency, and sustainable development by Stephan Schmidheiny( )

16 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 2,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Prominent industrialist Stephan Schmidheiny, coauthor of the influential book, Changing Course: A Global Business Perspective on Development and the Environment, joins Argentinean business leader Federico J.L. Zorraqufn and the other 123 members of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development in taking a close look at whether the workings of financial markets (stocks, bonds, banks, and insurance companies) do, or should, support sustainable development. Largely descriptive rather than prescriptive, Financing Change is the first study to examine questions that will become increasingly important as populations burgeon and the developing countries enter financial markets. It examines these issues in separate chapters covering the viewpoints of the financial market participants: company directors, investors and analysts, bankers, insurers, accountants, and raters

The sustainable business challenge : a briefing for tomorrow's business leaders by Jan-Olaf Willums( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two decades ago, in the late 1970s, environmental concerns were only beginning to surface in the world's boardrooms. Today, environmental stewardship is part of every board member's vocabulary. So what issues will be on the corporate board agenda twenty years from now? How fully will environmental and social questions be integrated into the fabric of an enterprise? That depends on those entering the corporate world now: by the time today's business students have gained senior positions, concepts such as eco-efficiency and the "social licence to operate" should be common currency. Therefore, environmental concerns will be high on the list of recruitment and career development requirements of 21st-century corporations. So how well prepared are today's business students? The Sustainable Business Challenge began with a collaboration between the WBCSD and the international student organization AISEC to discover precisely that. Environmental staff from the WBCSD's member companies, business professors and members of environmental NGOs were asked to help compile a document of what every student should know. A version was posted on the Internet along with a certificated exam, The Sustainable Business Challenge Exam, and was greeted with much enthusiasm from around the world. This success prompted great demand for an accompanying book. Based on the original Internet background document, The Sustainable Business Challenge is now available. The Sustainable Business Challenge is the most comprehensive and up-to-date primer available on issues of corporate sustainability and of environmental issues that affect business. All the key topics are addressed thoroughly and succinctly:What does sustainable development mean and what are its implications?What are the important issues for business regarding climate, water, fisheries, agriculture, forestry, biodiversity, energy, transport and waste?What are the key topics on today's board agenda?What do businesses need to know about emerging themes such as product stewardship, sustainable consumption, global trade, and risk and uncertainty?What are the tools for managing the sustainable corporation?What about concepts for the next century, such as eco-efficiency, by-product synergy, the "triple bottom-line"?In order to put these issues - and many more - in context, they are all viewed from the perspective of the fictional "SDX Corporation" (a US multinational manufacturing corporation) as they get to grips with the policy implications of environmental issues throughout 1999. We eavesdrop on an imagined dialogue as a large corporation questions its future, via board papers, internal memoranda, letters and press clippings. This takes "The Sustainable Business Challenge" above the realm of an environmental management textbook, presenting instead the story of a corporation's search for sustainability. A final chapter takes us to 2020 and imagines what will be on the board's agenda by then. The Sustainable Business Challenge is unique in the breadth of its scope, yet doesn't over-simplify the issues. It is thoroughly revised and up to date (it includes discussion on the implications of the Kyoto negotiations), and includes contributions from John Elkington (SustainAbility), Rick Bunch (World Resources Institute) and numerous others. Anyone - business students, managers, heads of SMEs - looking for a single resource that presents all the key environmental issues as they affect business, now and into the next century, need look no further than The Sustainable Business Challenge."--Provided by publisher
