You could argue that all organizations have a responsibility to ensure they have a minimum negative impact on the environment. This includes small businesses. But small businesses have limited resources with which to pursue sustainability initiatives and must focus on their core objectives in order to survive. How can SMEs strive for sustainability without compromising on growth or profit? In this groundbreaking book, Lowellyne James demonstrates how sustainability can be a profit driver for small businesses. He shows how innovative SMEs can pursue accreditations and awards--as well as use environmental legislation--to increase resource efficiency, reduce consumption and improve stakeholder engagement. The result is improved financial performance as well as reduced environmental impact, and a sustainability plan that is truly integrated into business strategy. The first half of the book explores the frameworks, accreditations and awards that SMEs can utilize to enhance their performance. The second half focuses entirely on four real SME case studies, explaining the ways in which small businesses have put these sustainability principles into practice. This book is vital reading for postgraduates of quality management, entrepreneurship and sustainability in business. It will also be valuable for executives of SMEs looking to incorporate sustainable initiatives and policy makers looking to motivate SMEs to adopt sustainable behaviours.
