This book outlines the principles of eco-efficiency and presents case studies of their application from a number of international companies, including 3M and the Dow Chemical Company.

The term "eco-efficiency" describes business activities that create economic value while reducing ecological impact and resource use. This book outlines the principles of eco-efficiency and presents case studies of their application from a number of international companies, including 3M and the Dow Chemical Company. It also discusses the value of partnerships-with other companies, business associations, communities, regulators, and environmental and other nongovernmental groups. In the conclusion, the authors argue that business must become more eco-efficient and that governments need to change the conditions under which business operates, including tax and regulatory regimes, to make them more conducive to eco-efficiency.

"[A] significant shift in business thinking... While the debate on the role of business in environmental leadership will continue, there should be no doubt that the widespread implementation of the authorsA' approach by the business community would deliver benefits for the environment, society, and the economy." Paul Gilding, Worldlink"[A] comprehensive and thought-provoking view of the role of business as it moves toward sustainable development." William G. Brown, Environment
