IN THIS SUMMARY
A comprehensive and practical guide to responsible business ecology. This Elmwood Institute handbook shows how to conduct an ecological audit (as opposed to the current practice of compliance auditing), which is a complete examination of an organization in relationship to its long-term ecological sustainability. Change toward ecologically responsible operations depends on the participation of everyone in the enterprise. The focus should be on liberating people’s energies; recognizing their latent potential; giving orientations; setting processes in motion; showing respect and consideration; emphasizing intuition, meaning, and vision; increasing flexibility; and enhancing the system’s learning potential.
