The Sustainability Handbook: Volume 2 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 2 explores the concept of Radical Sustainability within an enterprise and why it is needed. With examples from zero waste to eliminating use of rare earth resources, triggering sustainable practices to cause related marketing, and sustainability responsibility to external transparency over internal incidents, this volume offers practical solutions for those who desire to progress from a Sustainable Strategy to an effective Sustainability Portfolio Management approach. Underpinned by international research-based evidence, it explores associated trends and drivers within the marketplace and how innovative environmental, social, economic and governance aspects can be considered and solutions applied.

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.
