This collection draws together 10 articles from Harvard Business Review that were published between 1999 and 2010 and written by business and environmental specialists mostly from the US. The articles focus on ways to "green" a company while making it profitable, specifically how sustainability can drive innovation; the green-product development process; a framework for the clean technology economy; how executives can use ideas from prior trends to gain competitive advantage in sustainability; the link between competitive advantage and corporate social responsibility; strategies for natural capitalism; rethinking the supply chain; measuring a firm's contributions to climate change; and how companies like Petrobras and Timberland dealt with sustainability issues.
