This book brings in a concise form the different ways sustainability can be used in the different areas usually covered in an M.B.A.
Easy to read with many examples.
Do not expect any real new concepts, but if you are new to the field it is most useful to familirize yourself with all that goes on in this field

I thoroughly appreciate this book. Owning an advertising agency in New York City that primarily seeks green, cleantech and sustainable oriented companies, The Sustainable MBA has been my bible for the last six months. Unlike so many other books in this area, The Sustainable MBA is supremely practical and full of ways for companies like mine to no only envision how their own companies should run, but also how they can assist client companies of all sizes in the sustainable space. I highly recommend it!

This is an excellent book, even broader in scope and substance than the title suggests. Indeed, while a lot of the content has to do with "green", most of it is relevant to any business, especially "green" or not. It covers accounting, economics, entrepreneurship, ethics and corporate governance, finance, marketing, operations, organizational behavior, strategy, how to monitor and improve performance, and, last but not least, tools for greening offices and buildings. The information conveyed is up-to-date.

While the treatment of each topic is necessarily brief - some 15 to 30 pages, I find the selection of issues highly pertinent, well-focused and unusually clear. For example the chapter on economics, as the dismal science bears on business, explains clearly the problem of the commons, the concept of externalities, the significance of regulatory and market-based instruments such as subsidies, then looks at "green metrics", before turning to issues relevant to doing business in emerging markets. Each of these is handled in very user-friendly style, and the author guides readers to additional sources of information.

Who should read this book ? -- students, persons about to start a business, public officials and staff of philanthropic organizations interested in private sector development, and, yes, members of "educated general public".

I hope Ms. Weybrecht receives the recognition this book deserves.

There are so many books about increasing sustainable practices that it is hard to know where to start. As a complete novice, I often felt overwhelmed by the amount of text dedicated to this topic. At last, Giselle Weybrecht has compiled a simple and easy-to-read guide to green management. Her tips and tools should appeal to both the uninitiated and the well-informed in sustainable practices. What's more, her tone is sympatheic and enthusiastic - she does not repremand or cast aspersions. I also appreciate the practicality of her book; she presents a solid business case for her suggestions and demonstrates that sustainability can be profitable. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has even a passing interest in sustainability.

I just finished the Sustainable MBA and found it extremely helpful in trying to understand how I can make a difference at my (or another) company. As a Management Consultant focusing in Change Management - Sustainability and 'what can I do today' discussions come up all the time. This book provided down-to-earth ideas and resources to continue my research.

I highly recommend it as a general overview and text for understanding how we all can make a difference.
