Abstract:

From the Publisher: "Investing in a Sustainable World explains why institutional investors have been so reluctant, even antagonistic, about making ES a central strategic element in their decision-making processes. More important, the book details how several leading-edge investors are getting ahead of the curve, and how you can-and must-too." From energy to real estate and banking to automobiles, the competitive landscape for business is changing in unprecedented ways and at a furious pace. Featuring compelling examples, real numbers, and incontrovertible evidence, Investing in a Sustainable World shows you why-and how-the smart money is now on green-and will be for at least the next few decades.
