The twin challenges of climate change and economic instability mean that businesses, and people, must adapt to survive.

Whatever your level or industry, and whether you'd like to transform your entire company or just get your colleagues recycling, Climb the Green Ladder provides you with the tools and motivation to move your company (and career) towards a more successful, more sustainable future. The book:

  • Identifies the key themes that underpin successful sustainability strategies
  • Includes real-life case studies from people who've effectively changed their workplaces from within
  • Gives you a comprehensive tool-kit for action

Read how Kristen Thomas' idea to replace disposable dishes started a tidal wave that greened her company and won new business!

Learn how Coral Rose was instrumental in persuading Wal-Mart to introduce organic clothing!

Find out how Martin Blake helped show Royal Mail how to save 20 million a year and wipe up to 100,000 tonnes off its carbon footprint!

Includes a detailed directory of 75+ resources to help you bring real change to your workplace.

Authors Amy V. Fetzer and Shari Aaron undertook extensive research to find out what works and what doesn't. They surveyed hundreds of employees and employers, and interviewed over 80 sustainability specialists to uncover the secrets of their success.

Format: Hardcover
As the owner of a sustainability consulting company, I get inundated with requests from people who want to get into the "green industry". They are full of passion, and many are brilliant in their respective fields, but they have a hard time figuring out how to transition into a green career. Now I can point them to "Climb the Green Ladder" - either as a starting point, or in conjunction with professional career coaching. I know they will be inspired by the wealth of fantastic case studies in the book. But perhaps more importantly, they will have a step-by-step roadmap for making that transition in their own lives. What a great resource!
