Endorsement by UNEP head Achim Steiner : ?Much has recently been written about how a new wave of ?green? corporations is just around the corner, an endogenously transformed phalanx of knights in shining armour just waiting to rescue us. Pavan Sukhdev says ?not so?, but he also shows with consummate skill & clarity what exogenous changes can be made, to re-engineer the 'social contract' between society and corporations in the 21st Century.?
Endorsement by film celebrity Edward Norton : "The ideas and assertions in this book blow well past 'insightful' and edge toward 'revolutionary' insofar as they expose major fallacies in our most basic assumptions about what we call our 'economy'.? It's an equally important exposure for corporate leaders and leaders of the movement for environmental sustainability, because both need to move beyond the 'infancy phase' in terms of truly understanding and acknowledging the value of natural resources.? A seriously inspiring and, ultimately, very hopeful piece of work."
Indian origin author who is running a very visible and high profile campaign called Corporation 2020. The book is very accessibly written and it tackles corporate greed among other things. It provides workable solutions to effect change in corporate behaviour. In this age of Anna Hazare activism this book is very topical.
