Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very thorough discussion of the topic. Mostly high level (conceptual) but does include a multiple of real-world examples

FWIW, this book will take longer to read than you might expect. There are ~273 pages of text but note that the typeface size is small and the lines are densely packed together (little inter-line white space). A more typical layout with a larger typeface size for text and lines not as densely packed would probably create a book with 400+ pages of text.

Format: Hardcover
The parts where he discusses how increasing sustainability can directly benefit a company are interesting and thought provoking but too many of their suggestions are based in an alternate reality. Here is but one of many examples, "Companies select their suppliers, distributors, joint-venture partners, licensees, and other business partners not only on the basis of price and quality but also on social, ethical, and environmental performance. Companies that embrace this principle set specific targets for utilizing indigenous, disadvantaged, or minority-owned businesses and use their purchasing power to encourage suppliers to improve their own social, environmental, and economic practices.". While I'm positive both the authors are bright it is painfully obvious they have never worked in a corporation.

This is an excellent book. Thorough, but with a real focus on documenting and detailing what makes, or breaks, a sustainability effort. My only small criticism is that the illustrations are in black and white (color would have made some of the diagrams, charts, illustrations and figures easier to read and understand), but this is a small thing. Overall, I recommend it very highly.
