An important contribution for embedding sustainability into the business school curriculum

We have a challenging and pressing journey to make in sustainability. Take this book with you - the "Sat Nav" of Sustainable Management.
A rich and suggestive resource for educators across the business curriculum who want plug-and-play modules on sustainability for their courses or simply examples that they can build upon, enhance or use as models for entirely new class content. And for those students who want to go further than their courses, this book is a wonderful, compact and practical introduction to the questions, the frameworks and the action strategies they can take with them into their careers as sustainability-minded leaders and managers.
This book is far more than a "how to" guide. With the range of ideas and inspiration it provides it really leaves little excuse not to do what we can to make our curriculum fit for graduates who will need to lead the change for a fairer and more sustainable society.
