Climate change, the resource constrained economy, and sustainability in general are amongst the hottest and most problematic topics for contemporary businesses. This book provides a comprehensive overview of how the world's sustainability challenges are affecting and being affected by business.

This is an admirable piece of work that provides a good overview of the debate and critically examines how business can respond to sustainability challenges. It is well supported by both theory and case studies and is written in a clear and compelling manner. It will be an invaluable resource for students on our programmes, since the structure is well aligned with our curriculum.

Michael Blowfield is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Oxford's Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment where he researches business transformation in an era of climate change and resource constrained economies. He is also a Teaching Fellow in Corporate Responsibility at the London Business School. He has worked as an academic and consultant in the field of corporate social and environmental responsibility with a particular focus on the socio-political context of corporate responsibility, and the role of business in society. Building on extensive experience in international development, including living and working in twenty different countries, he began a critical examination of corporate responsibility in global supply chains in the late 1990s. He was principal investigator and programme manager for a portfolio of government and corporate-funded projects that analyzed the field of corporate responsibility in the context of developing countries.
