Green Executive Review Round-up
When you read this I’ll be off on holiday for two weeks visiting family in Belfast. So we’ll be on holiday blogging routine – about twice a week rather than thrice – and the topics may reflect the holiday spirit.
First up, there have been quite a few reviews of The Green Executive since its publication, so I thought I’d do a quick round up.
Elaine Cohen on CSRWire.com said:
“The Green Executive is an essential book for those who want a leadership view of how to make a business sustainable, from how to address the risks to how to exploit the opportunities. The book is nicely populated with models, frameworks and ways to advance, and is pitched exactly right to make it interesting without getting bogged down in academic texts. Using tools that include Gareth Kane’s Sustainability Maturity Model or his summary of new and emerging green markets, green executives may just become a mainstream feature of business.”
Jessica Shankleman on BusinessGreen said:
“…in his lively new book The Green Executive, a well written manual designed to help business leaders improve the environmental impact of their company.”
Nick Smith in Engineering & Technology said:
“But it doesn’t have to be this way, argues Kane in his well-informed and public-spirited new book. Why not, instead of tinkering around the edges of sustainability, go the whole hog and make it a pillar of your corporate DNA? There are, as he explains, sound commercial reasons for following this track.”
Florian Kaefer on the Sustainable Futures Blog:
“only a few books really stand out from the crowd… One of those outstanding books comes from Gareth Kane… Sustainability leadership – what CEOs and business leaders need to know in terms of sustainability, is aptly summarized in Gareth’s new book The Green Executive.”
“I would strongly recommend this book to any organisation”
“This book is a must read for businesses everywhere.”
