    Green initiatives ratchet up your company′s resource efficiency, creativity, and employee motivation. They save energy, waste, and money, preserving precious capital-and give precise focus to your innovation efforts and strategic priorities.

    Part manifesto and part how-to guide, this concise and engaging book provides a road map for using green initiatives to deliver short-term gains and position your company for long-term strategic growth. You′ll discover how to:

    • Get lean: Amp up your energy and resource efficiency to survive tough times
    • Get smart: Use environmental data about products and supply chains for competitive advantage
    • Get creative: Rejuvenate your innovation efforts by asking heretical questions such as "How might we operate with no fossil fuels?"
    • Get going: Engage and excite employees to solve the company′s, the customer′s, and the world′s environmental challenges

    Green Recovery is your guide to establishing your competitive positioning in difficult times and emerging even stronger into a vastly changed economy.

    Green to Gold: How Smart Companies Use Environmental Strategy to Innovate, Create Value, and Build Competitive Advantage
    The leading guide to driving growth and profits through green strategy—now revised and updated

    The business world and the natural world are inextricably linked. Our economy and society depend on natural resources. Every product comes from something mined or grown. The environment provides critical support to our economic system - not financial capital, but natural capital. And the evidence is growing that we re systematically undermining our asset base and weakening some of our vital support systems.
