Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
When the economy turns rough, many companies sideline their green business initiatives, but that’s a big mistake. Green initiatives actually are a great way to cut costs precisely because these initiatives are all about ratcheting up your company’s resource efficiency. They save energy, waste, and money, preserving precious capital–and give precise focus to your innovation efforts and strategic priorities. They can also help you position your organization for the recovery, boosting creativity and employee motivation for long-term strategic growth.
As part of the author’s larger work in the forthcoming book Green Recovery, this free special report shows the overarching logic of a plan to implement green initiatives for both short- and long-term gains, and then focuses in on the actions companies need to implement immediately to get lean quickly. From changing light bulbs to tweaking distribution routes and innovating recycling patterns, Winston selects just the ideas that will bring you a return on investment quickly and get you leaner faster.
