For courses in Business Ethics, Business and Society, Applied Ethics, and Environmental Ethics.
This is the first text to bring the sustainability paradigm to the forefront of management and business ethics.

The future is clear: given present global environmental, population, and poverty trends, economic institutions will be judged by how well they meet environmental and ethical, as well as economic, goals. Joseph R. Desjardins wrote this book to make the case for this claim.
