Sustainable Strategy : A Natural Environmental Lens on Organizations and Management
How can firms create a more environmentally sustainable organization that increases their competitiveness? Designed for students in courses on environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility, as well as for executives looking for guidance on developing a comprehensive environmental sustainability strategy, Sustainable Strategy addresses this question. A clear summary model helps to organize the book's contents into four sections. Part I describes the pressures placed on firms by the natural environment, society, and regulatory bodies. Core strategy is presented in Part II, which explains the concept of strategy, how it is formed, and different types of strategies. Part III covers the myriad of actions a firm can use to increase its competitiveness. Part IV examines the relevance of these concepts to specific situations such as entrepreneurship, and contexts such as universities, municipalities, and emerging markets.An online Instructor's Manual with a test bank, PowerPoint slides, and teaching notes is available for adopters.
