The Sustainability Handbook provides a comprehensive and holistic understanding of sustainability, bridging the gap between academic theory and business practices. Global climate change poses enormous environmental challenges, and societies across the world must adapt and innovate to further the goals of sustainability for present and future generations. The private sector especially must find new ways of doing business to align their practices with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the international community. Using a conceptually structured framework throughout, the book examines the latest academic research to summarize what environmental, social, and economic sustainability actually means in different contexts.

Using numerous specific case studies and insights from industry leaders, the book shows how to strategically integrate sustainability into the organization, with extensive focus on policies, incentives, measures, operations, production, consumption, and lifecycle management. Volume 1 explores the concept of Substantial Sustainability Innovation within an enterprise and why it is important. It clarifies the difference between environmental, social and governance aspects of sustainability and how they relate to each other. With examples from local sourcing to C02 reduction, business ethics to sustainability portfolio management, green business process management to gender diversity, this volume explores how you can use sustainability to innovate and identifies which components to use to build an effective sustainable strategy.

For researchers, students, and businesspeople at all levels and sectors, this handbook is an essential reference of the latest sustainability tools and methodologies required to adapt and innovate towards sustainability.
