This is a really well-researched and well-written academic book. Although it focuses on the American market, it has many examples that are applicable to the whole world. Furthermore, the questions of sustainability as a business practice is now relevant and applicable to most industries, which in my case is the fashion industry.
An easily accessible book that provides case studies. I felt the book provided a solid insight to the difficulties being faced by organisation when discussing sustainability.
An enjoyable read recommended to entry level.
the book provides good coverage of key topics in the field of sustainability studies. it provides good background reading for students who do not attend the course as well.
The book offers a focused economic\business perspective to Sustainability. the concept of Sustainability has been used widely sometimes in a vague less meaningful manner. The book offers a focused approach. this is extremely helpful for beginners in research in the field of Sustainability.
The best book to cover the majority of the competencies.
This book is accessible and well-organised. Unfortunately it lacks critical reflections and fails to address significant controversies and contestations in the field.
Good core text.
Sustainability is such a key topic for MBA students and this book is very useful as a resource for them.
A good comprehensive account of all the issues relevant to sustainability and business. This proves invaluable especially to law students and other non business students.
Sustainable Enterprise was better in my view.
A very good overview of sustainability, however from my point of view the book only gives a brief overview of many different topics. Whilst is not as in-depth as I would have liked for my students, it is a good "starter" book to advise where to look for more research.
This book is accessible and clear. It is a good supplement for my course on CSR and Business Ethics.
Relevant. Excellent cases. More ethics philosophy and theory than my previous text.
Most comprehensive book out there right now
The book is really well presented and i like that everything is well explained. This is an easy book for students to pick up and find information, it is also thorough
Sustainabilty is such an important concept in business and this is a very useful book for students to use to deepen their knowledge.
A helpful overview of sustainability issues related to businesses.
Unfortunately, my research subject - CSR reporting - is covered only briefly in the book.
However, I will recommend the book to students seeking a broad and easily comprehensible overview over everything related to "green business".
The first book that really discusses the sustainability theme in a business. Good and clear structure, enlightning examples. Clearly written and easy to follow, so it suits very well to bachelor level studies.
a very useful orientation guide for business students, and economic geography / environmental management students going into this field
