About the eBook

How does your organization deal with environmental and social initiatives?· Does it undertake them in order to exploit market opportunities?· Does it quantify such initiatives as part of a sound business strategy? · Does it quantify their economic opportunities and benefits, e.g. better reputation, increased revenues? · Does it quantify their costs, e.g. up-front investments? · Does lack of relevant data prevent it from undertaking them? Good environmental and social practices can generate benefits besides higher profits – competitive advantage and market positioning, easier recruitment and retention of employees, better relations with investors and access to capital, increased learning and innovation, and reduced risks.This book shares how organizations can make a difference to the environment, human health, and their bottom lines. Although the focus is on corporations, every chapter is relevant to civil society, and governmental and non-governmental organizations, which are interested in the environment and human health, and in taking action. It presents anecdotal, practical, and statistical evidence linking action on the environment and health with financial performance.
