The concern about climate change has increased the importance and raised awareness of the concept of sustainability. Painful choices in the decision-making process of companies will be made to reach a new sustainable path. This book shows the importance of implementing sustainable practices in business as an opportunity to reduce climate change impacts and improve environmental/social quality.
While many companies are seeing today's challenges as opportunities and are successfully striving to pass through the difficult transition from "business as usual" to sustainable commerce,many others are not.
If companies want to work on sustainable practices,
they should put this goal at the core of their businesses, as opposed to an additional effort apart from their core concerns. This book demonstrates how four sustainability indices have been motivating
Brazilian companies to achieve a sustainable path. It also provides recommendations to assist Brazilian companies to follow suit.
