Eco-Efficiency: The Business Link to Sustainable Development

By Livio D. DeSimone; Frank Popoff | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

Although for practical reasons our names appear as the authors of this book, much of the credit for its content belongs to others. Its origins lie in the World Business Council for Sustainable Development's working group on eco-efficiency, which we had the good fortune to chair.The group's mission was to transform into action what was then a vision, eco-efficiency, by providing examples of how it had improved the economic and environmental performance of companies. As part of its activities, it convened two expert meetings in Europe (Antwerp 1 in November 1993 and Antwerp 2 in March 1995) and one in the United States ( Washington, D.C., in November 1995). A list of all the participants at these meetings, and of working group members, is located at the end of the book.

We are especially grateful to Allen H. Aspengren, eco-efficiency manager of 3M, and Peter James, director of the Sustainable Business Centre, for their inputs to the preparation of this text, and to the anonymous reviewers of MIT Press for their comments on early drafts.Thanks are also due to the members of the WBCSD editorial steering group, consisting of Paul Adams, Frank Bosshardt, Claude Fussler, Jan-Olaf Willums, and Ben Woodhouse, and all those like Peter Hindle, Jane Hutterley, Ross Stevens, Clement Malin, and Judith Mullins who read drafts of the manuscript and submitted some of the best-practice examples reproduced in the text.We have also cited a number of company examples from various publications of the UNEP Industry and Environment Programme, which provides invaluable assistance on cleaner technology to many companies around the world, and from Tomorrow magazine, which has a close working relationship to the WBCSD. In addition, we would like to acknowledge the valuable contribution
