Regardless of why large companies are going green, the shift is never an easy one, particularly within large corporations, where change can be glacial. That's where this book comes in--it's the perfect resource for CEOs launching or professionalizing an environmental sustainability program, and Six Sigma Green or Black Belts charged with running a green or sustainability strategy.
