Beschreibung

Business people need help reducing the impact of their companies on the environment. This book will help them identify what can be done, systematically set priorities, and create an action plan for implementing improvements. It will also help them sell an impact reduction program to their top management.
In contrast to the current practice of "compliance auditing," a process focused on meeting governmental regulations, this Elmwood Institute guide shows how to conduct an "eco-audit" - a complete examination of an organization in relation to its long-term ecological sustainability. Such an audit scrutinizes every aspect of the organization and its operations, including product design and manufacture, management techniques, corporate culture, and goals.
This book provides a comprehensive framework for companies that need to design their own audits. In addition, a set of thirteen checklists guide managers through the audit process, covering such topics as energy, materials, wastes, finance, marketing, transportation, and international business relations.

Ernest Callenbach is the author of the environmental classic, Ecotopia, and many articles on a sustainable future.

Lenore Goldman consults on strategy, change, and impact. For over 20 years, she has worked with business, government, nonprofits, and multi-sector initiatives to find creative solutions to complex challenges. A seasoned facilitator, Lenore has helped build capacity and collaboration - changing policy and sustaining results.
Rudiger Lutz is the co-author of Ecologically Conscious Management in Germany and professor of design ecology at the Berlin Academy of Arts.
