Description

Eco-Efficiency is more than a book. It contains both a vision and managment tools for a green 21st century.

Eco-Efficiency is more than a book. If all business people and policy makers would follow, the world would be better off. ―Ernst Ulrich von Weizsacher, President, Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environmental and Energy; co-author, Factor Four: Doubling Wealth- Halving Resource Use (Endorsement). Livio D. DeSimone is chairman and chief executive officer of 3M and Frank Popoff is chairman of Dow Chemical.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) is a CEO-led organization of over 200 international companies. The Council is also connected to 60 national and regional business councils and partner organizations. Its origins date back to the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit of 1992, when Stephan Schmidheiny, a Swiss business entrepreneur, was appointed chief adviser for business and industry to the secretary general of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED)

The term "eco-efficiency" describes business activities that create economic value while reducing ecological impact and resource use. This book outlines the principles of eco-efficiency and presents case studies of their application from a number of international companies, including 3M and the Dow Chemical Company. It also discusses the value of partnerships - with other companies, business associations, communities, regulators, and environmental and other nongovernmental groups.

This book outlines the principles of eco-efficiency and presents case studies of their application from a number of international companies, including 3M and the Dow Chemical Company. It also discusses the value of partnerships--with other companies, business associations, communities, regulators, and environmental and other nongovernmental groups. In the conclusion, the authors argue that business must become more eco-efficient and that governments need to change the conditions under which business operates, including tax and regulatory regimes, to make them more conducive to eco-efficiency.

Their environmental passion is heartfelt, but the authors of Eco-Efficiency: The Business Link to Sustainable Development are no tree huggers. Livio D. DeSimone is chairman and chief executive officer of 3M and Frank Popoff is chairman of Dow Chemical. The co-authors' status as corporate titans lends credibility to their positions. The planet's fragile ecology is in danger of being destroyed by its inhabitants and large corporations bear much of the responsibility for saving the environment, they write. This isn't a screed, though. Rather, it's a reasoned guide to making your company more profitable and more environmentally friendly at the same time. The "eco" in their favorite buzzword, eco-efficiency, refers to both economics and the ecology. By examining their processes, companies can reduce waste that's costly financially and ecologically, they argue. Due to its measured, balanced analysis of the relationship between business and the environment, we at getAbstract strongly recommend this book to all executives and students, especially those who have a real concern for the environment, but find themselves frustrated at the strident tone of many environmentalists.

Eco-efficiency provides a thorough diagnosis of what is necessary for business to grow and become more economically and ecologically efficient in a changing world, as well as providing arguments for how governments have to allow open markets to promote sustainable development. However the views are one sided, barely addressing legitimate arguments. Also, it is difficult to trust the athors who are both CEOs of companies not historically known for 'green' efficiency. And, if you can't trust the messenger, how can you trust the message?
