'An important contribution for embedding sustainability into the business school curriculum'

'We have a challenging and pressing journey to make in sustainability. Take this book with you - the "Sat Nav" of Sustainable Management.'
Alison Edmonds, Head, GEMBA+ Global Executive MBA Programme, Manchester Business School
'A rich and suggestive resource for educators across the business curriculum who want plug-and-play modules on sustainability for their courses or simply examples that they can build upon, enhance or use as models for entirely new class content. And for those students who want to go further than their courses, this book is a wonderful, compact and practical introduction to the questions, the frameworks and the action strategies they can take with them into their careers as sustainability-minded leaders and managers.'
Mary C. Gentile, PhD, Babson College, Author of 'Giving Voice To Values: How To Speak Your Mind When You Know What's Right'
'This book is far more than a "how to" guide. With the range of ideas and inspiration it provides it really leaves little excuse not to do what we can to make our curriculum fit for graduates who will need to lead the change for a fairer and more sustainable society.'
Zoe Robinson, Director of Education for Sustainability, Keele University
