Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce the publication on June 21st, 1999 of

'Sustainable Measures
Evaluation and Reporting of Environmental and Social Performance'
Edited by Martin Bennett and Peter James
with Leon Klinkers

£35.00	US$65.00	592 pp.	Hardback	ISBN 1 874719 16 0

ENVIRONMENTAL and social performance measurement and reporting by
business has become a high-profile issue during the 1990s. It is
increasingly being requested by stakeholders and required by
governments. Companies too are finding that they need better
environmental and social performance data for effective internal
management. And there are a growing number of standardisation
initiativesÑsuch as the ISO 14031 guidelines on environmental
performance evaluation or the CERES Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)
template for sustainability reportingÑthat are aimed at making it easier
for more companies to take action, and for stakeholders to compare their
progress.

'Sustainable Measures' collects together most of the key work and
individuals concerned with the topic from around the world.
Contributions include: environmental and social reporting by John
Elkington and colleagues at SustainAbility; the GRI discussion draft;
Roger Adams and Martin Houldin on the FEE study of environmental
reporting; Janet Ranganathan of the World Resources Institute on
sustainability measures; and Martin Bennett and Peter James on ISO 14031
and the future of environmental performance evaluation. There are also
chapters examining current practice in Austria, Denmark, India,
Indonesia, Japan, the Netherlands and South Africa, developments in
electronic reporting, as well as case studies of Baxter, Kunert, Niagara
Mohawk, Unox, The Body Shop and the UK water industry, and an analysis
of leading social reports.
The book is essential reading for all academics, campaigners,
policy-makers and practitioners with an interest in issues such as:

¥ The standardisation and comparability of environmental and social
performance measures
¥ Measuring and reporting on sustainable business
¥ Eco-points and other means of evaluating product impacts
¥ The implementation of measurement and reporting
¥ Best practice in corporate environmental and social reporting
¥ New means of communicating environmental data
¥ÊEnvironmental performance evaluation in developing countries


"UNEP welcomes the publication of 'Sustainable Measures'. It is an
excellent overview of state-of-the-art developments in this field and
should be of considerable use to organisations seeking to respond to
increasing stakeholder pressures for greater transparency and
comparability in the reporting of environmental and social performance."
Klaus Tšpfer, Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme
(UNEP)

"This very useful book collects ideas and examples from around the
world. It should add considerably to the understanding and further
development of social and environmental performance evaluation and
reporting."
Jonathan Lash, President, World Resources Institute

"I'm sure that the wide spread of authors and subjects collected here
will be essential reading for anyone interested in the past, present and
future of environmental and social performance measurement and
reporting."
Lise Kingo, Vice-President, Stakeholder Relations, Novo Nordisk

"We will certainly be taking on board many of the ideas and lessons
contained within this book."
Mar’a Emilia Correa, Executive Director, the Colombian Business Council
for Sustainable Development (CECODES)
