Sustainability is a process that demands cooperation rather than competition. Sustainability in Action offers a variety of case studies that show how industry, managers, policy decision makers, regional planners and stakeholders cope with the sustainability concept and what it means to them. Although any decision is made in very specific environments, some general guidelines, methods and tools are available to link business with sustainability. The distinguished authors, from a rich diversity of backgrounds, present case studies from their own unique perspectives of the concept of sustainability. Each chapter contains several different approaches to its subject and these can include possibly technical and ethical views, the application of physical indicators or social parameters and even a holistic view. The case studies show that no universal framework for sustainability exists and that any process or conflict has unique features requiring specific answers. With its multi-faceted approach to applying sustainability to industry, planning and science, the readership of this book will extend into the fields of environment, economics and sociology as well as those in government and policy making.
