Description
Everybody knows it costs more to be environmentally conscious, right? Wrong. Stoneyfield Farm, the world's largest manufacturer of organic yoghurt, has boasted a compounded annual growth rate of more than 26 percent for 13 straight years. Through CEO Hirshberg's embrace of cyclical, non-linear resource use - in which waste from one action results in food for another - the company has turned conventional wisdom upside down. A truely astounding guide to how business can save the planet while achieving bigger and better profits.

display_descriptionHirshberg describes how he built a successful $300-million-per-year business by incorporating environmental principles and practices, and how other companies can accomplish this as well. He maintains that making a business green actually saves companies money in the long run, while boosting consumer loyalty and thus reducing advertising costs. Hirshberg illustrates his points with practical information and advice, as well as anecdotes from the early days of his yogurt company. Included are many examples of other businesses that have saved money by reducing their environmental footprints.--From publisher description.
