The Sustainable Business

This business textbook focuses on the original meaning of a sustainable business – one that can grow and survive long-term. It does discuss “going green” and other environmental issues but it is more focused on building a long-term business strategy that includes cost-cutting to increase profits. Author Jonathan T. Scott presents the material in a highly readable style which makes his work useful to all students, not just business majors.

Jonathan T. Scott has been a lecturer, manager and business leader in eight different countries. He is on the faculties of Kozminski University (Warsaw, Poland), Audencia Nantes School of Management (Nantes, France) and Bradford University (Bradford, UK). He also taught at the University of Perugia in Italy. His professional work experience includes turning around three companies. His bio mentioned that he has been recognized “for tripling productivity, reducing costs by up to 40%, and increasing net profits by over 55% at the companies where he worked.”
