This ground-breaking Handbook uniquely focuses on the business of sustainability, offering a fresh insight and practical solutions to the challenges that businesses face in making human activity sustainable. It is organised into four distinctive themes that cut across levels of analysis and illustrate a rich set of solution contexts that will guide future research.
 
The Handbook on the Business of Sustainability offers a comprehensive review of research and empirical evidence on sustainable business, exploring the importance of private sector engagement and implementation. World leading scholars cover the key areas such as organization, implementation and the measurement of outcomes and social impact. The insightful case studies also provide critical context and complement the chapters highlighting emerging practices and solutions for the successful application of sustainability initiatives in business.
 
The Handbook will be an invaluable resource for academics, practitioners, and policymakers to reflect on the “concept and practice” of articulating and strategizing in order to achieve sustainability targets.
Critical Acclaim
‘Sustainability in business is complex because of the interdependencies and interconnectedness to other elements of the firm’s core business. The Handbook on the Business of Sustainability is a compilation of chapters that constitute a “call to action” on the business aspects of sustainable growth. It brings forward novel concepts to help businesses think through the critical issues. I have no doubt it will be an invaluable resource to academics, practitioners, and policymakers.’
– Erika H. James, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, US

‘Sustainable growth is perhaps the single most important issue facing humanity. Management research is yet to comprehensively map out the opportunities for business. In this Handbook of Sustainable Business, George, Haas, Joshi, McGahan and Tracey have convened the leading scholarly voices. This book will undoubtedly become a key reference for business and sustainable growth.’
– Mauro F. Guillen, Cambridge Judge Business School, UK

‘This Handbook brings together over 70 prominent thought leaders on sustainability, and provides a much needed framework that simplifies the complexity of sustainable business into four clear themes: (1) organizing for sustainability, (2) implementing sustainable development, (3) sustainability in practice, and (4) measuring outcomes and social impact. The Handbook will certainly generate discussion and trigger the next generation of ideas and research evidence to guide businesses.’
– Sarah A. Soule, Stanford Graduate School of Business, US
