Description
The contributors to this book present research on crafting long-term ecological and societal solutions in order to achieve sustainability. The in-depth analyses explore the interactions among social, environmental, and development impacts of organizations at community, regional, national and global levels. In doing so they shed light on the way forward amidst the complexity of issues involved, referred to here as the sustainability mosaic.Organizations and individuals cannot be sustainable in isolation. Rather, it is necessary to understand them as parts of an overall system comprising ecological, individual, organizational, political-economic and socio-cultural levels. One of the characteristics of the sustainability mosaic is that efforts are carried out at all these levels. Collectively, the contributors provide the analytic framework required for understanding sustainability and the multiple, interconnecting and embedded systems. Students and scholars of sustainability, environmental studies and business will find in this book commonalities for new and collaborative research. CEOs, managers and consultants will find much of value as they negotiate their way towards sustainability.
