The Natural Step for Business examines how four very successful "evolutionary" corporations in Sweden and the United States-including IKEA and Scandic Hotels in Sweden, and Collins Pine and Interface in the U.S.-are positioning themselves for long-term competitiveness using The Natural Step as a central part of their corporate strategy. Nattrass and Altomare puncture the myth that a company must choose between profitability and care for the natural environment, and present a timely and practical application of this exciting model for global sustainability.

Top Customer Reviews
The book and its ideas challenge you to see the world as an interconnected place, and business as a part of the natural scheme of things. Sustainable business practices are inherently considerate of others and the world around them, and they are possible with deliberate choices and planning. It challenges us to think beyond the normal practices of business for me first , and to seek practices that do not trample any capitals, natural, human or economic under foot.
The Natural Step covers the idea of how and why one should be concerned with sustainable ideas beyond our selves. What we do matters in the small and large scale of life, and if you don't believe so - I dare you to read and honestly consider the facts set forward in this book!
It is worth its price, and actually returns more than you give for it!
