The Responsible Business offers a new and strategic approach to doing business that holistically integrates responsibility into all aspects of an organization, allowing for returns at every level, business and social. This book goes beyond the often well-intentioned but limited attempts at sustainability to present a framework that allows organizations to bring responsibility into everything they do and reimagine success. From innovation, product development, and production processes to business management, strategic planning, and shareholder development, the author shows how being a responsible business is a practical skill that can be applied day-to-day at every level of the business.
