Environmental risks can have a significant impact on organizations, affecting investment decisions, stakeholder interactions, and government regulations.
These risks have become more apparent particularly as the effects of climate change are felt by the world's industries, populations, and ecosystems. Organizations of all sizes can improve their chances of success-and survival-by integrating sustainability into their operations and decision-making. The Sustainability Handbook covers the complexities, challenges, and benefits of sustainability when pursued by corporate, academic, government, and nonprofit organizations.
It provides a blueprint on how organizations can reach or exceed economic, social, and environmental excellence.
This second edition identifies the newest, most cutting-edge practices in the field to stimulate organizations of all types to take the next step toward sustainability, offering a wide variety of practical approaches and tools, including a model sustainability policy for organizations, summaries and tips on selecting sustainability codes, an extensive collection of sample metrics, and much more.
