Walking the Talk: The Business Case for Sustainable Development

Walking the Talk: The Business Case for Sustainable Development Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by the CEOs of Shell, DuPont, and Anova, Walking the Talk: The Business Case for Sustainable Development is the most important book about corporate responsibility and yet it is written by business for business. For the first time anywhere, leading industrialists show than an integration of sustainable development goals — economic growth, social justice and ecological balance — into corporate strategy will provide lasting shareholder value and immediate bottom-line returns. Even more remarkably, the authors insist that a global partnership — between governments, business, and civil society — is essential, if moves towards globalization are to maximize opportunities for all — especially the world's poor.

Book News Annotation:

Swiss industrialist Stephan Schmidheiny, Charles O. Holliday (Chairman and CEO, DuPont) and Philip Watts (Chairman, Royal Dutch/Shell) argue that sustainable development is good for business. Drawing upon 67 business case studies from around the world, the authors present evidence that good corporate social and environmental performance benefits the bottom line as well as the planet. They also contend that globalization of the marketplace is the best path towards sustainable human progress.

Synopsis:

Walking the Talk represents a first: major business leaders arguing that sustainability is not only compatible with but crucial to business success. Drawing on nearly 70 case histories of companies around the world, the authors show how the three pillars of sustainable development — economic growth, ecological balance, and social progress — work to improve the bottom line even as they create a better world.
