About The Book
This text presents a series of case studies from around the world based on numerous personal interviews with organizational leaders and focusing on their journeys towards sustainability. The aim is to provide visions of a more sustainable future, and to shed light on the path, milestones and solutions - in particular the management processes these organizations employed - to provide a compass that others can follow. Although each organization must take steps to fit its particular circumstance, business conditions and culture, the book seeks to prove that valuable lessons can be learned by setting aside critique as to where these organizations may yet make progress and instead focusing on the guidelines, targets, measures of success, tools and techniques and wisdom about how pioneer organizations are travelling towards a prosperous, sustainable future. The organizations featured include: Sony Corporation; SC Johnson; TransAlta Corporation; Henkel; Volvo; Interface Flooring Systems; DaimlerChrysler; ASG; and the Dutch National Environmental Policy Plan.
