Imagine a world in which the excess energy from one business would be used to heat another. Where buildings need less and less energy around the world, and where regenerative commercial buildings - ones that create more energy than they use - are being designed. A world in which environmentally sound products and processes would be more cost-effective than wasteful ones. A world in which corporations such as Costco, Nike, BP, and countless others are forming partnerships with environmental and social justice organizations to ensure better stewardship of the earth and better livelihoods in the developing world.

Now, stop imagining - that world is already emerging.

A revolution is underway in today's organizations. As Peter Senge and his co-authors reveal in The Necessary Revolution, companies around the world are boldly leading the change from dead-end business as usual tactics to transformative strategies that are essential for creating a flourishing, sustainable world. There is a long way to go, but the era of denial has ended.

Today's most innovative leaders are recognizing that, for the sake of our companies and our world, we must implement revolutionary - not just incremental - changes in the way we live and work.

Brimming with inspiring stories from individuals and organizations tackling social and environmental problems around the globe, The Necessary Revolution reveals how ordinary people at every level are transforming their businesses and communities. By working collaboratively across boundaries, they are exploring and putting into place unprecedented solutions that move beyond just being less bad to creating pathways that will enable us to flourish in an increasingly interdependent world.

    " Senge provides an overview of systems thinking and addresses the importance of sustainability and how organizations should incorporate this concept. Another key point the text brings out is that of economic justice, which is at the heart of sustainability. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sebastian | 6/20/2013

    " "Anders dan alle andere boeken van Peter Senge. Interessant om te lezen als het gaat om de feiten van de noodzakelijkheid van duurzaam ondernemen. Minder interessant omdat het geen echte handreikingen doet." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meg | 10/1/2012

    " Too scientific for my taste. Learned a lot and opened my mind but didn't ache to read every word like other books by Senge. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 3/6/2010

    " The first and last sections of this book are dripping with the author's opinions on the world which I don't necessarily agree with. However, the middle sections included a lot of really good and insightful case studies which really redeemed this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jinnie | 8/21/2009

    " I'm listening to this on audio. The content is GREAT! Unfortunately, the reader is a snooze-and-a-half. There's also no cues at the end of each cd to let you know it's time to change them, so it just loops (on my car system), which is annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 12/24/2008

    " Excellent summary of why companies need to take action, examples of those that have and an invaluable list of tools for creating change within a company. "
