Can you save the planet and have some fun along the way? Aimed at the teacher who updates students on the latest climate change negotiations, the conservationist who works to protect endangered species, the office manager who buys fair-trade coffee, or the city counselor who lobbies for cycle lanes, this book is a guide for everyone who is trying to create a more sustainable planet. Based on the latest psychological research, Niki Harré shows which strategies work (drawing on positive emotions, role modeling, and social identity), which don't, and why. The book ends with a self-help guide for sustainability advocates that outlines how we can work for change at the personal, group, and civic level. This edition is fully revised and updated with new material on hope, sadness, worldview and climate change, behavioral contagion, moral foundations, and more. The book is now accompanied by a free online manual with exercises to illustrate the key concepts and apply them to real world sustainability issues.

The transport, storage and handling of goods impose a heavy burden on the environment. As concern for the environment rises, companies must take more account of the external costs of logistics associated mainly with climate change, air pollution, noise, vibration and accidents. Leading the way in current thinking on environmental logistics, Green Logistics provides a unique insight on the environmental impacts of logistics and the actions that companies and governments can take to deal with them. It is written by a group of leading researchers in the field and provides a comprehensive view of the subject for students, managers and policy-makers. Fully updated and revised, the 3rd Edition of Green Logistics takes a more global perspective than previous editions. It introduces new contributors and international case studies that illustrate the impact of green logistics in practice. There is a new chapter on the links between green logistics and corporate social responsibility (CSR) and a series of postscripts examining the likely effects of new developments, such as 3D printing and distribution by drone, on the environmental footprint of logistics. Other key topics examined in the book include: carbon auditing of supply chains; transferring freight to greener transport modes; reducing the environmental impact of warehousing; improving the energy efficiency of freight transport; making city logistics more environmentally sustainable; reverse logistics for the management of waste; role of government in promoting sustainable logistics Ideal for use on related courses, the 3rd Edition of Green Logistics includes indispensable online supporting materials, including graphics, tables and chapter summaries, as well as technical information and guidelines for teachers and lecturers. The book is endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

The Forty nine Steps

""Forty-nine steps" refers to the Talmudic doctrine that there are forty-nine steps to meaning in every passage of the Torah. Employing this interpretive approach, Calasso offers a "secret history" of European literature and philosophy in the wake of Nietzsche, Marx, and Freud. Calasso analyzes how figures ranging from Gustav Flaubert, Gottfried Benn, Karl Kraus, Martin Heidegger, Walter Benjamin, Franz Kafka, Bertolt Brecht, and Theodor Adorno has contributed to, or been emblematic of, the current state of Western thought. This book's theme, writ large, is the power of fable - specifically, its persistence in art and literature despite its exclusion from orthodox philosophy."--BOOK JACKET.

Schumpeter's concept of innovation was the starting point for further study, reflections and analyses on the importance of innovation in the economy. Nowadays, research into innovation captures several significant aspects of innovation: it includes both internally conceived and externally adopted innovation (production or adoption); innovation is stressed as more than a creative process, by including application (exploitation); intended (value-added) benefits are highlighted at one or more levels of analysis; the possibility that innovation may refer to the relative, as opposed to absolute, novelty of an innovation is assumed (an innovation may be common practice in some organizations but it would still be considered as such if it is new to the unit under research); and attention is drawn to the two roles of innovation (a process and an outcome). The creation and management of innovation has many dimensions that spread to all levels and dimensions of the organization. The conditions that lead to innovation are a combination of processes in an organization that result from internal and external dynamics. Innovation is not only an economic mechanism or a technical process. It is primarily a social phenomenon, the result of various interactions and relationships between individuals; to be implemented, it must obtain public approval as it changes paradigms, both in ways of thinking, production, organization and management, as well as in consumption. The process of innovation is the implementation of innovation in the social system of organization that has specific conditions both at the organizational level (e.g., organizational culture or structure), group level (including the leadership style) and individual level (including creativity, knowledge, competencies, personality, and learning). Innovation management at various levels of the organization, the effective harmonization of innovation process management and innovation management from different levels of decision-making will create a synergy effect. It is therefore necessary to take into account the complexity of the research subject and include the actual problems resulting from the needs of multi-level innovation management and respect for the diversity of its conditions in the research. The issues addressed in this book are: - identifying key trends in the theory and practice of innovation management - defining key ontological beings and their use in innovation management - presenting the new dimensions of innovation management as seen through the eyes of the international authors of individual chapters - the possibility of applying solutions to problems addressed in this monograph The editors and authors hope that the presented combination of theory and practice will satisfy the needs of readers, in particular managers of modern companies, business consultants and researchers.
