"Earth, Inc. provides counterintuitive management lessons and a practical blueprint to address sustainability. It will also help you build credibility for your sustainability investments." - Ryan Schuchard, Manager, Environmental Research & Innovation, BSR
"Gregory Unruh's "biosphere rules", his notion of a "value cycle" and his prescription of embeddedness will change the way we think of sustainability in business. Building a sustainable global economy is one of the most crucial challenges of our time and the answers, as it turns out, were staring us in the face." - Angel Cabrera, President, Thunderbird School of Global Management

A useful look at why less material and less energy use mean more profit
By Rolf Dobelli
Sustainability? Gregory Unruh says plan for it, "embed it and forget it!" Unruh codifies five rules that nature follows for efficient productivity in the biosphere and illustrates how these rules can work for business. He explains how to rethink "product platforms" and how to maximize the benefits of waste streams. getAbstract recommends this quick read for inspiration on finding your company's next surge in profits: earnings based on ecologically sustainable practices. As a bonus, these rules also boost your triple bottom line.
