Sustainability Policy: Hastening the Transition to a Cleaner Economy is a fundamental guide to sustainability policy development, implementation, strategy, and practice. Featuring detailed cases highlighting innovative sustainability initiatives, this book explores the elements that constitute effective policy, and the factors that can help or hinder implementation and adoption. The book describes the critical role the government plays in the transformation of our economy, and underscores the importance of public-private partnerships. The authors feature policies in effect at the federal, state, and local levels across all areas of environmental sustainability. Emphasizing politically-feasible policy tools, the book demonstrates current and potential applications and focuses on public sector actions that spur innovation and organizational change in the private sector and behavioral change at the individual level.
