Book Recommendation

Green to Gold: How Smart Companies Use Environmental Strategy to Innovate, Create Value, and Build Competitive Advantage

by Daniel C. Etsy and Andrew S. Winston (2009)

Green to Gold

Written by an environmental lawyer (Etsy) and a business strategist and consultant (Winston), this book describes the need and process by which companies are incorporating sustainability and environmental considerations towards achieving growth, profitability, and competitive advantage. The authors offer a number of supporting business cases, anecdotes, and insights as to how the application of an environmentally conscious business strategy can benefit a corporation (as well as the environment). Like other strategic thinkers, they advocate finding opportunity in the existing challenges, and environmental concerns are certainly prevalent enough to warrant better management and awareness. Those that genuinely respond to interests of environmental sustainability can, and do, generate value for their organizations and take the lead within their respective industries.
