The Future of Value: How Sustainability Creates Value Through Competitive Differentation
Book Image
The Future of Value is the story of how certain companies – Sustainable Market Leaders – are embracing sustainability as a way to create value for their stakeholders today and tomorrow.

The Future of Value reveals that the boundaries of competition have been altered by sustainability’s emergence as the newest dimension of competitive strategy. In response to this expansion of competitive strategy’s boundaries, certain companies, called Sustainable Market Leaders, have mainstreamed their sustainability management responsibilities throughout business units, departments, and geographic regions. As a result, their efforts are producing growth through innovation and reverse innovation (innovations created to serve developing markets that are then brought to developed markets) and enhanced agility through relationships with suppliers, stakeholders, employees, and even competitors
