How Sustainability Creates Value for Any Business
Integrated Management is the process of including ESG performance in close coordination between business processes, groups, organizations, and systems. What can be done by individuals, functions, organizations, and entire value chains to integrate and align sustainability? It’s easy to say sustainability is important, yet not so easy to understand how it is part of the decisions that are made every day and how it cuts across business functions, systems, and supply chains. This award-winning book finds enterprises already on the path toward integrated management and strategic sustainable development. It considers the opportunity we have to enable an enterprise value proposition that includes ESG performance as a Return on Integration (ROInt). Winner of the Responsible Research in Business & & Management (RRBM) Award.

The State of the Art in Corporate Environmental Management Systems
It is now assumed that most large companies have some version of an Environmental Management System (EMS) in place with systems ranging from informal policies and practices to formalized third-party certified systems that are widely publicized by companies and are now integral to their strategic direction. No matter what level and type of system a firm chooses, both practitioners and researchers wish to examine and better understand the extent to which these systems are cross-functional, how they impact performance evaluation, their capability to monitor supply chains and the life-cycles of products and services and, most importantly, how these systems contribute to better environmental performance and the sustainability reports.
