(1 of 5) Book Review “Sustainable Value: How the World’s Leading Companies Are Doing Well by Doing Good” by Chris Laszlo

Sustainable Value by Chris Laszlo 2

INTRODUCTION

Sustainability is rapidly becoming a mainstream business issue, primarily because environmental, social and regulatory compliance issues are having growing financial impacts on companies. Ignoring a company’s environmental footprints may increase financial risks for organizations. By continuing in this path, a company might also miss key opportunities for innovation, creativity, brand enhancement, competitive advantage and the sustainability of business itself.

On the other hand, it is also true that unless sustainability can really help companies achieve their business goals; more specifically profit, most of them would simply be unwilling to implement sustainability principles in their businesses and organizations. This book tries to find the middle ground where both shareholders as well as stakeholders could satisfy their common interests and where the triple bottom line i.e. people, planet and profit is served through sustainable value creation. The author has divided the book in three major parts, briefly described in the sections below. (To be continued….)

  1. I noticed that some places in Kathmandu were unsightly littered with garbage. I wonder why schools never send delinquents to pick up garbage as part of community service program? It could transform Kathmandu significantly, create more waste management businesses and inculcate good values in kids.
