Kristina Mageau, August 8, 2012 (view all comments by Kristina Mageau)
If you are looking to learn more about the business world and how it intersects with sustainability, I highly recommend this book. It is full of useful information about how to set sustainability standards and how to understand them. It is more geared towards for-profits rather than non-profits so it is not entirely broad. However, it does attempt to reach out past just one market or industry so that many companies could use the book to figure out how to make sustainability part of their story.
