To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a comprehensive and thorough book on sustainability for larger businesses, but it also contains chapters on applications for smaller companies, NGOs, and governmental entities. We use this as a recommended reference book in the Corporate Sustainability Strategy class that I co-teach at Harvard University Extension School. It provides a broad overview of sustainability from all three perspectives – environmental, social and economic – and includes many examples to help illustrate the concepts. Our students have given it consistent positive reviews, partly because of the case study examples and also because of the extensive appendices that provide a reference to the other tools available in the field. I would recommend this to anyone serious about the nuts and bolts of sustainability and how to make it operational in your organization. It is an excellent reference for sustainability professionals as well as students. Suzanne Farver, ALM, JD, Instructor, Harvard University, author of "Mainstreaming Corporate Sustainability."
This book was required for one of my degree in sustainability. It is very informative and provides different points of views. Discussed how the triple bottom line is essential to business and developing a stragey for corporations big or small.
