"Environmental Debt expertly connects the two big systems we all depend on -- financial and ecological -- and shows that they're completely intertwined -- one cannot succeed without the other. Larkin is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap and map out a plan to make both systems stronger.--Andrew Winston, coauthor of Green to Gold
“Humankind’s days of pillaging the earth for its resources are over. Today, a new strategy is needed if the global economy is to survive. Larkin’s three guiding principles for 21st century commerce are required reading for anyone invested in a thriving business landscape as well as a healthy environment.” --Kumi Naidoo, Executive Director, Greenpeace International
"Amy Larkin sounds the alarm of the coming economic crisis and calls for urgent actions to repair our relationship with nature. A committed environmentalist, she also knows firsthand how the business world gets real work done, and argues for pragmatism and common sense to undo environmental harm and re-make the future. As a business person and industrialist my entire career, I support Environmental Debt as part of an inclusive and well-rounded roadmap to make the world a better place."--John Hofmeister, retired President Shell Oil Company, founder/CEO Citizens for Affordable Energy, and author of Why We Hate the Oil Companies
"Larkin offers a comprehensive framework to connect the causes of these crises to ensure businesses are not derailed by environmental problems." -- The Irish Times
