Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the economy turns rough, many companies sideline their green business initiatives. That's a big mistake. In Green Recovery, Andrew Winston shows that no company can afford to wait for the downturn to ease before going green.

Green initiatives ratchet up your company's resource efficiency, creativity, and employee motivation. They save energy, waste, and money, preserving precious capital-and give precise focus to your innovation efforts and strategic priorities.

Part manifesto and part how-to guide, this concise and engaging book provides a road map for using green initiatives to deliver short-term gains and position your company for long-term strategic growth. You'll discover how to:

-Get lean: Amp up your energy and resource efficiency to survive tough times

-Get smart: Use environmental data about products and supply chains for competitive advantage

-Get creative: Rejuvenate your innovation efforts by asking heretical questions such as "How might we operate with no fossil fuels?"

-Get going: Engage and excite employees to solve the company's, the customer's, and the world's environmental challenges

Green Recovery is your guide to establishing your competitive positioning in difficult times and emerging even stronger into a vastly changed economy.

Synopsis:

The many advocates of green business and sustainability who have spent the past months fretting that the opportunities and responsibilities inherent in climate change are being forced to the sidelines during the recession are missing the forest for the clear-cut trees. The savviest green thinkers and smartest business leaders see these challenging times as green's potentially shining moment, its chance to emerge from a responsibility or tertiary opportunity to a core strategic tenet right now. Green is a recession-fighting tool waiting to be unleashed. It is the means to cutting costs and boosting supply-chain efficiency. It is the lens through which stripped-down innovation efforts can find new focus. It is a rallying cry to get demotivated employees focused on future success.
