Sustainable Strategic Management refers to strategic management policies and processes that seek competitive advantages consistent with a core value of environmental sustainability. Firms that pursue sustainable strategic management base the formulation, implementation, and evaluation of their strategies on an analysis of the ecological issues they face, the values they hold that support sustainability, and the ecological interests of their stakeholders. This volume has been specifically written as a supplement to traditional graduate and undergraduate management texts. It fills the need for a strategies text that gives full attention to sustainability and environmental protection. The authors have structured the book to follow the usual order of topics in any standard management text. The book also features on-going, chapter-by-chapter case studies of two organizations -- Appalachian Sustainable Development and Ford Motor Company -- that exemplify many of the principles of environmentally sound management practices. From creating organizational visions, to formulating goals and strategies, to strategy implementation and evaluation, this work provides readers with new ways of thinking about their organization's role in the greater society and ecosystem.require firms to emphasize one triple-bottom-line dimension over the others, firms basing their long-term strategic ... to focus their strategic initiatives at the intersection of economic success, social responsibility, and ecological health ( see Figure 3.1). ...
