Editorial Reviews

Review

[Sustainability Management] will be used widely as a text for environmental studies, political science, and business majors. Strongly recommended.

(Library Journal)

Review

This is an excellent book that will make a valuable contribution to the literature on environmental policy, management, and sustainability. Chapter topics are policy relevant and timely.

(Elizabeth A. Corley, Arizona State University)

I have not seen a volume that brings together such important information on the topic of environmental sustainability as well as this one. An impressive effort, likely to attract a great deal of attention in the environmental policy field.

(Sheldon Kamieniecki, University of California, Santa Cruz)

Steve Cohen is becoming the Peter Drucker of sustainability management. This book will become the bible for teachers, CEOs, and human resources executives in the public and private sectors seeking to make their organization work better and waste less.

(William Eimicke, Columbia University)

Steven Cohen's explication of "sustainability management' advances the discourse on a concept that urgently requires differentiation from environmental policy, discussions of which sometimes reduce the complexities of our multidimensional embeddedness on the planet to a spurious dichotomy between environmental protection and economic development. Cohen makes the case that sustainability has become integral to management. His book is critical reading for policymakers and practitioners inacademia, business, industry, and government.

(Michael M. Crow, president, Arizona State University)

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.

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.
