Sustainable Frontiers throws down the gauntlet to business to step up to be the catalyst for a sustainable future. It presents eight keys to unlocking transformational change through leadership, enterprise, innovation, transparency, engagement, responsibility, integration and future-fitness. Far from being another tame review of corporate social responsibility and sustainable business initiatives, the book dispels the myths of sustainability and challenges us to let go of old systems that are failing to deliver economic, social and environmental transformation. It gets to the heart of why the sustainability and CSR movements have failed in the past and offers a new view of how sustainable business practices can shape-shift to make a genuine difference inside and outside organisations.

Making Collective Governance Work – Lessons from the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative

Eddie Rich and Jonas Moberg
June 2015, Greenleaf Publishing

With a Foreword by Clare Short, former Secretary of State for International Development

In a world characterised by globalisation, governments increasingly find themselves unable to govern. Corruption is everywhere, natural resources are being exploited, the environment damaged, markets distorted, and the fight against poverty is often ineffective. Certain challenges cannot be addressed by governments alone. Increasingly, collective governance “beyond governments” is seen as part of the solution, with state and non-state actors working together.
