"Greening Your Business" is just what the doctor ordered: A smart and sensible, hands-on guide any company can use to align environmental responsibility with business success. Finally, in one place, is the full menu of possibilities, from small steps to large ones, clearly spelled out, combining checklists with concise and compelling context. It's destined to become a bible for any company seeking to stay competitive in the growing green economy. -- Joel Makower, Executive Editor, GreenBiz.com, and author, "Strategies for the Green Economy"

"Here in one handy guide, are all of the things you never needed to worry about when energy was cheap. But now this book represents huge savings that will go straight to your bottom line, and help the planet a little in the process. Comprehensive and useful!" -- Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy and The End of Nature

"With charts, worksheets, and other practical tools and advice, Dan Sitarz's */Greening Your Business: A Hands-On Guide to Creating a Successful and Sustainable Business/* offers a step-by-step game plan for bringing environmental sensitivity into business strategy, especially for the small business person. With material covering the full spectrum of issues from energy to water to waste, Sitarsz gives practical advice on how to respond to the green wave that is sweeping across society." -- Daniel Esty, Professor of Environmental Law and Policy at Yale Law School, and co-author of /Green to Gold: How Smart Companies Use Environmental Stategy to Innovate, Create Value, and Build Competitive Advantage

Format: Paperback
For all those who think being more Green means spending a ton of money, go out and get this book. The larger your enterprise, the more money you'll save. Managers at a large manufacturing facility might save millions of dollars per year-particularly if you haven't gone after the low-hanging fruit already. The owner of a small retail store might save several thousand, and a home-based solopreneurs will likely save a few hundred. And it should be required reading before building a new facility or retrofitting an old one. No matter what kind of business or nonprofit you run, follow the advice in this book and you'll be Greener, and you'll save money.

Want examples? Sitarz documents that General Electric slashed its energy consumption by nine percent, saving $100 million (p. 56). Wal-Mart retrofitted its truck cabs with heating and cooling units, so the big diesels didn't need to run just to keep the cab comfortable at a truck stop, saving $22 million in the first 16 months (p. 156).

It's full of specific tools and resources to lower the cost and the environmental impact of energy, transportation, construction, water use, office equipment and appliances, supply chain issues, and more. And to my pleasant surprise, even though the book covers some pretty technical material, it's written in a very accessible style. There are also many weblinks, spreadsheets, and checklists, conveniently included in both an enclosed CD and in the actual text.

And while this book doesn't discuss the marketing benefits of a Greener approach, you'll be well-placed to take advantage of that (for how to harness the full benefits of your Green investments in your marketing, I recommend my own book, Principled Profit: Marketing That Puts People First).

Shel Horowitz is the award-winning author of Principled Profit: Marketing That Puts People First, which shows how to succeed in business through ethical, Green approaches.
