Most people support sustainable development without knowing what it is. What exactly are sustainable consumption and sustainable production, and how are these practices identified?  This volume reviews the state-of-the-art in measuring sustainable production processes in industry. It includes metrics developed by business, trade unions, academics, NGOs, and the OECD and IEA. These measurement approaches cover the "triple bottom line" (economic, environmental and social dimensions) of industrial sustainability.

Sustainable Production as Good Business

Sustainable production is highly important in order to meet the environmental challenges we are now faced with. At the same time, a growing number of companies have found new business opportunities in sustainable production. But we need new ideas and new initiatives from all parties to enhance the development of even more win-win solutions. We need better insight into how sustainable production can contribute to the performance, profitability and competitiveness of business in order to get more companies on board. And it is important for governments to obtain knowledge from business on what is possible in practice.
