Summary
"Investing in a Sustainable World explains why institutional investors have been so reluctant, even antagonistic, about making ES a central strategic element in their decision-making processes. More important, the book details how several leading-edge investors are getting ahead of the curve, and how you can - and must - too." "From energy to real estate and banking to automobiles, the competitive landscape for business is changing in unprecedented ways and at a furious pace. Featuring compelling examples, real numbers, and incontrovertible evidence, Investing in a Sustainable World shows you why - and how - the smart money is now on green - and will be for at least the next few decades."--BOOK JACKET
