The Necessary Revolution
IN THIS SUMMARY
The Industrial Age is coming to an end, and business leaders across the globe are beginning to understand the need for revolutionary changes that will create a regenerative world. In The Necessary Revolution, Peter Senge and his co-authors describe the groundbreaking revolution currently underway to achieve sustainability. This revolution comes in response to diminishing resources, growing waste, and environmental and social crises such as water shortages, heat waves, and increasing levels of waste and toxicity. The Necessary Revolution addresses challenges in three interconnected areas: energy and transportation, food and water, and material waste and toxicity. Companies must understand that they have a choice to make – to either take the lead on sustainability issues or to shift the burden to someone else. Only then can they start making serious investments and taking advantage of the opportunities that go along with innovation.
