Format: Hardcover
This is a good book to introduce a reader to the concepts of sustainability - it provides a comprehensive overview of all the big topics without getting into too much technical detail. You don't have to be an environmental engineer or LEED certified to understand what he is talking about. It's a quick read that will pique your interest in this field if you aren't already familiar with sustainability.

Format: Hardcover
Businesses and policymakers face challenges when attempting to incorporate sustainability into their operations. This book provides an opportunity to learn how they can do it. Cohen provides examples of companies that were able to overcome those challenges. Integrating sustainability practices takes time, resources and strong commitment from business managers - but can have real, financial results. This presents a realistic view of sustainability.

This book is a great learning tool. Many people are unaware of the true meaning of sustainability; however this book exposes sustainability and all of its factors. I appreciate the knowledge Cohen shares, and I'm excited to apply these principles to my career and everydaylife.
