The multiple economic crises of the past two years demonstrate more clearly than ever that the age of 'mercenary' capitalism is over: we must finally embark on a new age of sustainable, stakeholder-based capitalism. While enlightened executives and policymakers understand the critical need for change, few have tangible plans for making it happen. Stuart L. Hart, one of the world's leading experts on sustainable capitalism, presents clear roadmaps and strategies for identifying sustainable products and technologies that can drive new growth while also helping to solve today's key social and environmental problems.
