This Earthscan Reader includes the most important and innovative chapters and articles on the interaction of business and the environment. The contributions included have been chosen with the help of a large advisory board, to ensure that they represent a broad cross-section of ideas and opinions, and are as useful as possible for both students and researchers. All the main elements of the debate are covered in five clearly structured sections: - Perspectives on Business and the Environment - Business Strategy and the Environment - Research, Development and Technology - Techniques for Environmental Improvement - Business and the Economy. In addition, an editorial commentary provides a helpful guide and outlines the issues, and comprehensive lists of sources and recommended further reading are included. The Reader brings together, in one book, the seminal contributions to the debate - including a previously unpublished article by Michael Porter. An extremely useful source of reference for students in business schools, management studies and environmental courses, it will also be valuable for environmental managers and consultants and those interested in 'greening' the business environment.
Contributors include: Roland Clift, David Fleming, Rob Gray, Ken Green, Paul Hawken, Colin Hutchinson, T Ikwue, Michael Jacobs, Roger Levett, Anita Longley, Michael Jacobs, Rolf Marstrander, Ian Miles, Michael Porter, Jim Skea, and Richard Welford
