For its 30th anniversary publication, Inc. Magazine created a "Business Owner's Bookshelf", a list of 30 books to guide entrepreneurs and managers. The books covered over 70 years of management writing from How to Win Friends and Influence People to Good to Great and beyond. Green to Gold, a new classic, was included on this list.
Since it was published, Green to Gold has become the leading book on green/sustainable business. With over 100,000 copies in print and appearing in seven languages, Green to Gold is now also available in paperback, revised and updated.
Green to Gold explores and explains what every executive must know to manage the environmental challenges facing business and society. It offers cutting-edge strategies and tools to help companies find their way in a world of resource constraints and pressures from all sides. Green to Gold focuses on innovation, execution, and making environmental thinking both a core business strategy and a driver of long-term growth.
Environmental pressures are here to stay, and executives need business-savvy advice on how to profit from them. The paperback edition includes a new preface on the forces driving business down a green path, a new section with frequently asked questions from executives around the world, and new and updated stories reflecting new realities throughout the book. Green to Gold includes stories of groundbreaking work from companies as varied as Toyota, Wal-Mart, BP, Nike, and IKEA. Green to Gold version 2.0 could not have come at a better time.
