Since this classic book was first published in 2003, sustainability has increasingly become mainstream business for leading corporations, whilst the topic itself has also been a hotly debated political issue across the globe. The sustainability phase models originally discussed in the book have become more relevant with ever more examples of organizations at later stages in the development of corporate sustainability.
Bringing together global issues of ecological sustainability, strategic human resource management, organizational change, corporate social responsibility, leadership and community renewal, this new edition of the book further develops its unified approach to corporate sustainability and its plan of action to bring about corporate change. It integrates new research and brings illustrative case studies up to date to reflect how new approaches affect change and leadership. For the first time, a new positive model of a future sustainable world is included - strengthened by references to the global financial crisis, burgeoning world population numbers and the rise of China.
With new case studies including BP's Gulf oil spill and Tokyo Electric Company's nuclear reactor disaster, this new edition will again be core reading for students and researchers of sustainability and business, organizational change and corporate social responsibility.

`Organizational change has always been a topic of central importance both in research and in practice. Corporate sustainability is perhaps the most important theme for organizations facing challenges in resources, business models and environmental impact. This book brings these two important topics together and creates a valuable resource for students, researchers and managers alike. The third edition builds on the strengths of the previous editions and I highly recommend it.' - Robert MacIntosh, Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh, UK
`Informative, honest and engaging! This is a topic of growing significance and in this book Benn, Dunphy and Griffiths not only map the territory of organizational change for sustainability, but also show us how we can make it happen!' - Johan Sandstroem, PhD, Professor, Industrial Environmental Management, Lulea University of Technology, Sweden
`This book presents a meaningful view on being strategically sustainable by developing a new co-operative relationship with internal and external stakeholders. In exploring this kind of third wave of sustainable corporations the authors convincingly demonstrate the need for `whole system thinking' and the use of `silo busting' collaborative change approaches. This is an essential reading for managers, students and change agents.' - Antonie van Nistelrooij, Ass. professor 'Organisational change & Development', VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands
