It’s not often that I wolf down a book on ESG during a work week. However, some works of accessible scholarship entail that kind of attention. Profit + Purpose is an intellectual tour de force which provides a ring side view to how sustainability can be operationalized on the ground from a PE Fund focused on SDGs to the B Corp movement.
The author explicitly lays bare the issues with making sustainability happen through projects and that intentions are not enough.
Doing good should not be impossible, it should be the only way to do business. The lens on implementation is refreshing and case studies educate rather than pontificate through high theory.
The writing is direct and is meant for the manager on the frontline of the sustainability trenches.
Must read for all sustainability professionals.
