Sustainability: What It Is and How to Measure It serves two distinct purposes that make this book most important for any business leader. First, it describes, in an unbiased manner, what sustainability is all about – explaining exactly how to think about the risks – and perhaps more importantly, the opportunities – associated with business sustainability. Second, it presents a complete system that enables you to measure precisely how your business stacks up against industry leaders. The author includes in great detail his proprietary framework, The Corporate Sustainability Scorecard™ C-suite rating system, which has been developed over 20 years and used by more than 70 Fortune 500 companies. This invaluable tool is meant for internal use at your organization to evaluate its practices in governance, strategy, environmental stewardship, and social responsibility. Gilbert S. (Gib) Hedstrom illustrates the use of the Scorecard with hundreds of best practice examples. He discusses the sustainability transformation that is sweeping across the business landscape today, framed in the language of the board and C-suite, but easily accessible to anyone with an interest in this most timely subject. This important contribution to the sustainability debate is undoubtedly the most detailed examination of the metrics currently available to evaluate a company’s management of environmental, social, and governance issues. Those interested in sustainability and business can learn from innovators around the world who are profiting from helping to solve the many problems that society faces today.
