"This book is a welcome addition to the literature, since it reinforces the message that there are organisations operating in a way which challenges conventional mainstream notions that companies are only about ensuring profitable returns. ... These case studies provide an interesting overview of the organisations and the challenges they have faced, with each case closing with a consideration of the risks faced by the firms. ... What is more interesting about the cases are the unexpected points that outline how these companies are away from the norm and facing more unique issues. ... In summary, this book is a very fast read and could be read over the course of two cups of coffee. Its presentation of findings is interesting to know and is undoubtedly useful to know. Beyond this the book’s contents are also useful as a potential teaching aid for students. " (Social and Environmental Accountability Journal
