The concept of sustainability has grown in recognition and importance. The pressure on companies to broaden their reporting and accountability from economic performance for shareholders, to sustainability performance for all stakeholders is leading to a change of mindset in consumer behaviour and corporate policies. How can we develop prosperity without compromising the life and needs of future generations? "Sustainability in Project Management" explores and identifies the questions surrounding the integration of the concepts of sustainability in projects and project management and provides valuable guidance and insights. Sustainability relates to multiple perspectives, economical, environmental and social, but also to responsibility and accountability and values in terms of ethics, fairness and equality. The authors will inspire project managers to be aware of these considerations, and to apply them to the role they play in projects, not just 'doing things right' but 'doing the right things right'.

Review:

'Sustainability in Project Management thinking and techniques is still in its relatively early days. By the end of this decade it will probably be universal, ubiquitous, fully integrated and expected. This book will be a most valuable guide on this journey for all those interested in the future of projects and how they are managed in a world in peril.' Tom Taylor, founder of dashdot and vice-President of APM 'Project Managers are faced with lots of intersections. The intersection of projects and risk, projects and people, projects and constraints... Sustainability in Project Management is a compelling, in-depth treatment of a most important intersection: the intersection of project management and sustainability. With detailed background building to practical checklists and a call to action, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in truly implementing sustainability, project manager or not.' Rich Maltzman, PMP, Co-Founder, EarthPM, LLC, and co-author of Green Project Management, Cleland Literature Award Winner of 2011 'Great book! Based on a thorough review on existing relevant models and concepts the authors provide guidance for different stakeholders such as Project Managers and Project Office Managers to consider sustainability principles on projects. The book gets you started on sustainability in project context!' Martina Huemann, WU-Vienna University of Economics and Business, Vienna Austria 'While sustainability and green business have been around a while, this book is truly a "call to action" to help the project manager, or for that matter, anyone, seize the day and understand sustainability from a project perspective. This book gives real and practical suggestions as to how to fill the sustainability/project gap within your organization. I particularly liked the relationship between sustainability and "professionalism and ethics", a connection that needs to be kept in the forefront.' David Shirley, PMP, Co-Founder, EarthPM, LLC, and co-author of Green Project Management, Cleland Literature Award Winner of 2011 'It is high time that quality corporate citizenship takes its place outside the corporate board room. This excellent work, which places the effort needed to secure sustainability for everything we do right where the rubber hits the road - our projects - has been long overdue. Thank you Gilbert, Jasper, Ron, Adri and Julia for doing just that! I salute you.' Jaycee Kruger, member of ISO/TC258 a technical committee for the creation of standards in Project, Program and Portfolio Management, and chair of SABS/TC258, the South African mirror committee of ISO/TC258 'Sustainability is no passing fad. It is the moral obligation that we all face in ensuring the future of human generations to come. The need to show stewardship and act as sustainability change agents has never been greater. As project managers we are at the forefront of influencing the direction of our projects and our organisations. Sustainability in Project Management offers illuminating insights into the concept of sustainability and its application to project management. It is a must read for any modern project manager.' Dr Neveen Moussa, Project Manager, Adjunct Professor of Project Management and past president of the Australian Institute of Project Management 'This book serves as an excellent call to arms for all project managers that will allow us to evolve and embrace our roles as the key agents of change in a new era where the emphasis on sustainability is at an all-time high. The authors have done a wonderful job in conveying and demonstrating the academic principles and practical methodologies of sustainability from around the world in project management practices with a direct correlation to environmental and organizational prosperity.' Joel Carboni President of GPM Global - Green Project Management 'As a forum for discussion of what is undoubtedly a major issue for the profession it is excellent... I think this book could have a wider audience than just its target. It could make very useful reading for business students, as well as for the project management profession and its trainees. It clearly has an important role to play, especially as an educational tool, and a catalyst for what is any important debate.' Project Magazine, October 2012 'This book serves as an excellent call to arms for all project managers that will allow us to evolve and embrace our roles as the key agents of change in a new era where the emphasis on sustainability is at an all-time high. The authors have done a wonderful job in conveying and demonstrating the academic principles and practical methodologies of sustainability from around the world in project management practices with a direct correlation to environmental and organizational prosperity.' American Society for the Advancement of Project Management, December 2012 'While there are a variety of books on these and related subjects, none deals with sustainability in project management as directly, effectively, and practically as this book.' Dr Okechukwu Ukaga, Environment, Development & Sustainability
