More about Sustainability at Work below:
Sustainability at Work is a compelling guide for everyone who wants to have both a successful career and a career that makes a positive difference in society. Professionals from a variety of backgrounds and geographic regions explain how they brought a sustainability approach to various sectors: agriculture, health care, business, economics, and financial services, education and research, law and policy, science and technology, and entertainment and media. Through inspiring narratives and a structured framework, Sustainability at Work illustrates how sustainability can be incorporated into every imaginable career to impact the quadruple bottom line: environment, economy, society, and future generations.
“At a time when sustainability means different things to different people, Marilyn Waite, in her deeply reflective and realistic book, offers an inspiring vision showing how we can meaningfully integrate the core concepts into our work and careers.” – Guru Madhavan Senior Editor of Practicing Sustainability and author of Applied Minds: How Engineers Think
An intellectual scaffold for workplace sustainability, peppered with anecdotes from many individuals incorporating sustainability practices into their own diverse careers, “Sustainability at Work” is an enlightening and easy read illustrating key actions for those seeking to deepen and extend the reach of their sustainable practices — this should be all of us. – Bethany L. Ehlmann, California Institute of Technology, USA
