Reinhardt Book Links Business and Environment
Forest Reinhardt, associate professor of business administration at Harvard Business School, has linked business success and environmental consciousness in his book Down to Earth: Applying Business Principles to Environmental Management.
The book, published in December 1999, argues that business managers would benefit if they set about solving environmental problems with traditional business tools and methods. This approach, Reinhardt argues, can lead to some companies turning environmental constraints into opportunities to both improve the companys performance and minimize its impact on the environment.
