"Sustainable strategic management" refers to strategic management processes that seek competitive advantages consistent with a core value for 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 and designed as a supplement to traditional texts in graduate and undergraduate strategic management courses. The authors have structured the book to follow the usual order of topics of any standard management strategy text. The book also features on-going, chapter-by-chapter case studies of two organizations, Appalachian Sustainable Development and Ford Motor Company, which exemplify many of the principles of environmentally sound management practice.
