With deep thought and inspiring examples, this updated book -- published by Routledge in August 2018 -- engages readers by increasing their understanding and awareness of what sustainability means conceptually, practically, personally, and professionally. It provides readers with the tools and techniques to improve the social, environmental, and economic performance of their organizations in both the short and long term. Since sustainability is not achieved in a siloed environment, everyone has a critical role to play on this journey.
The Sustainable Enterprise Fieldbook, with full companion materials at <https://TheSustainableEnterpriseFieldbook.com>, engages today’s managers and leaders of organizations, in both the private sector and civil society, who are being challenged as never before to find ways to play a proactive role in understanding and addressing the risks and opportunities of sustainability. It teaches them how to apply systems thinking to turn our most intractable problems into exciting business opportunities, and offers ground breaking frameworks in new chapters on globalization, strategy, metrics, and sustainability models for collaboration, technology, and community. That is why this book is structured to be a fieldbook to provide practitioners the Activities, Cases, and Tools that they can use to help move their enterprise through progressively higher performing stages of sustainability. For classroom use, the breadth of topics covered ensures an interdisciplinary approach to sustainable business practices with an emphasis on Human Capital, and the depth of each of the chapters, with numerous case studies, will facilitate engaged class discussion.
William Russell is currently teaching Business & Sustainability at Fordham University, using the new edition of the The Sustainable Enterprise Fieldbook. This webinar will be informed by Bill's roadtest of the materials this semester. Bill has also taught sustainability topics at Farleigh Dickinson and Columbia. Bill is also currently a Principal at Transition to Green, a consulting group. Previously, he created SKN Worldwide, a knowledge-base for sustainability information and project and community collaboration, and he was Director, Environmental Services at PWC.
