The Entrepreneurs Guide to Profitably Greening Your Organizations DNA
Street Smart Sustainability is designed to be a road map to the sustainable low-hanging fruit at a time when the public is hungry for businesses that demonstrate genuine respect for the environment. Individual chapters are designed to act as standalone sets of action steps on particular topics.
For example, one chapter discusses the physical facilities while another challenges the traditional concept of the supply chain. The book includes a chapter on management techniques and one that provides a system of metrics to measure the organization?s progress toward sustainability. If you read only the chapter on physical facilities, you?ll be equipped to put into effect those recommendations, while preparing for another initiative in another chapter.
Most small and medium-sized businesses spend their time operating without the luxury of management depth and outside advisors. They need to operate their businesses while making progressive changes over a period of time.
Read the chapter on purchasing, and you may implement those recommendations while managing your enterprise in a day-to-day manner. Do everything in all the chapters, and your organization will become much more sustainable. The book also includes tools that will measure progress and savings.
