Contents Notes Introduction: improving social and financial performance in global corporations -- A new framework for implementing corporate sustainability -- Leadership and strategy for corporate sustainability -- Organizing for sustainability -- Costing, capital investments, and the integration of social risk -- Performance evaluation and reward systems -- The foundations for measuring social, environmental, and economic impacts -- Implementing a social, environmental, and economic impact measurement system -- Improving corporate processes, products, and projects for corporate sustainability -- External sustainability reporting and verification -- The benefits of sustainability for corporations and society. "The best practices in corporate sustainability performance are no longer the exclusive domain of companies like Ben & Jerry's or The Body Shop, as they were a decade ago; now, large, multinational companies like G. E. and Wal-Mart are leading the way with significant financial and organizational commitments to social and environmental issues. However, good intentions aren't enough. Whether motivated by concern for society and the environment, government regulation, stakeholder pressures, or economic profit, managers and strategists need to continue making significant changes to more effectively manage their social, economic, and environmental impacts - and to remain competitive. The guidance they need to do that is in this book." "Marc Epstein has produced the ultimate "how-to-do-it" guide for corporate leaders, strategists, academics, sustainability consultants, and anyone else with an interest in actually making sustainability work for organizations. With a growing number of corporate leaders asking for urgent help in "getting this done," the timing of the book could not be better."--BOOK JACKET.
