Green to Gold is an essential guide for forward-thinking business leaders who see the Green Wave coming and want to profit from it. This audio explores what every executive must know to manage the environmental challenges facing society and business. Based on the authors' years of experience and hundreds of interviews with corporate leaders around the world, Green to Gold, shows how companies generate lasting value - cutting costs, reducing risk, increasing revenues, and creating strong brands - by building environmental thinking into their business strategies.

Green to Gold is written for executives at every level and for businesses of all kinds and sizes. Esty and Winston guide leaders through a complex new world of resource shortfalls, regulatory restrictions, and growing pressure from customers and other stakeholders to strive for sustainability. With a sharp focus on execution, Esty and Winston offer a hard-hitting yet inspiring road map that companies can use to cope with environmental pressures and responsibilities while sparking innovation that will drive long-term growth.

Green to Gold is the new template for global CEOs who want to be good stewards of the Earth while simultaneously building the bottom line. Download and start listening now!

    " basic review of company environmental strategies, but quite dry "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Brubaker | 12/9/2013

    " I feel like the same companies were used over and over again just like the points of the book. Easy read but would probably not read again "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Etuckermiller | 6/4/2013

    " examines economic feasability of companies movement towards more environmentaly friendly practices. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Quinn | 5/13/2013

    " Rather boring, don't waste your time. I feel like it was written with the fourtune 500 VP in mind and wasn't supper applicable to small business or individuals at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dante | 9/5/2012

    " I'm still reading this book, but so far, it has some good information on specific companies that have implemented sustainable practices. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 2/3/2012

    " This is a easy book to read cynically, and frankly I did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter Holst | 1/26/2012

    " In depth profile on what it means for companies to turn "green" into profits. Some make the choices intuitively while others are more creative. The real-world data keeps the book relevant, and it sorts them to make a well-structured guide for companies redefining their strategies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liesl | 11/22/2011

    " I thought this economically-focused environmental book was a refreshing twist on the typical environmental books. The facts and figures presented are well-support and make for an interesting and informative read. I would recommend this to all the skeptics out there on the "green" movement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 10/7/2011

    " Very interesting concepts and a good case study of being environmentally friendly. "

    " Read it as a text-book for an Business & the Environment class. The book read well, easy like Freakonomics or Undercover Economist but was too American-centric to be of much use, particularly in a class taught in Asia. The lecturer was American though! -Mel "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 4/6/2011

    " Eh. I think this reads more like an instruction manual for companies interested in embarking on a sustainability program. Not that much of a value-add for me but probably good for someone very new into sustainability. "
