Making social and ecological change happen is not easy. At both the planetary and organizational levels, it is a dance that is fraught with danger for both the change agents themselves and their organizations. The Natural Step is a framework designed to provide the science, analysis, methodologies and tools to use in the quest for sustainability. This book takes a deeper look at the real business impacts of sustainability; it presents the stories of individuals, teams and organizations learning about change and sustainability, and then acting on that learning. Case studies include some of the most successful companies and communities in North America: Nike, Starbucks, CH2Mhill, Whistler, Home Depot, Norm Thomson Outfitters, the municipalities of Seattle and Santa Monica, and others.--From publisher description.
