by Leo Raudys

BBE Teaching Specialist Leo Raudys recently released his first book. Raudys has worked in sustainability for over 25 years as a government regulator, corporate environmental leader for a Fortune 100 multinational and as a business development executive for an NGO. He's a strategist and speaker who advises companies, investors, and NGOs on regulatory and sustainability strategy and stakeholder relations. Raudys teaches corporate environmental management at the University of Minnesota within the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering.  

"The road from here to sustainability is long, winding and full of unexpected detours. We need good maps, and this is one of the best: a succinct, sometimes sassy, guide to who’s who and what’s what in the world of CSR and sustainable business, designed to help speed the journey." 

Joel Makower, Chairman and Executive Editor, GreenBiz Group, and co-author, The New Grand Strategy (St. Martin’s Press, 2016)

"Sustainability. CSR. Materiality. Natural capital. Circular Economy. ESG. So many words to describe how companies manage their social and environmental issues and contribute to the larger world. Managers trying to understand this growing field could certainly use a 'yellow pages' to chart a course through a complex environment. Leo Raudys’ new book, The Cheap Guide to Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility, gives readers a quick overview of the organizations and people trying to build a thriving world, and the language and ideas that inspire them."  
Andrew Winston, corporate sustainability advisor, author of The Big Pivot, and co-author of Green to Gold
