With more than two decades of experience at the high-profile environmental group, Amy Larkin might be expected to publish a screed against corporations for their polluting greed. Instead, “Environmental Debt” highlights the efforts companies such as Puma, Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola…have already made to reduce waste, change their supply chains and embrace environmentally sustainable practices. Larkin…puts her pitch in terms businesspeople understand: It all comes down to money. Successful companies…understand that they will pay more for resources and production down the line if they don’t invest now in energy-efficient upgrades and other changes. Associated Press

Humankind’s days of pillaging the earth for its resources are over. Today, a new strategy is needed if the global economy is to survive.

Amy Larkin’s terrific new book… explodes the myth of the contradiction between environmental protection and business. We can have it all, she says – a prosperous economy and a clean environment. She calls it the Nature Means Business model. But the corollary is also true — no Nature, no Business. – Francesca Rheannon, Writer’s Voice

The author puts so much solid advice into the book based on first-hand experience and careful observations both from the front lines and from behind closed boardroom doors.  Every business person ought to buy a copy (or more).  – Crosslands Bulletin on Business, Law, and the Environment
