Based on various activities of the Council, including expert meetings in Europe (Antwerp 1 in November 1993 and Antwerp 2 in March 1995) and in the United States (Washington, D.C. in November 1995). Includes bibliographical references (pages 247-260) and index.
"This book outlines the principles of eco-efficiency and presents case studies of their application from a number of international companies, including 3M and the Dow Chemical Company. It also discusses the value of partnerships - with other companies, business associations, communities, regulators, and environmental and other nongovernmental groups. In the conclusion, the authors argue that business must become more eco-efficient and that governments need to change the conditions under which business operates, including tax and regulatory regimes, to make them more conducive to eco-efficiency."--Jacket.
