"This will be an important textbook . . . I would select this for the required textbook for courses I teach."
"The expectation on 'what to follow' is set on the first page with the box "You will be able to . . ." and the rest of the chapters are very well structured according to these aims. The structure, as well as the central theoretical arguments in each chapter, develop very logically and the coherence of each chapter is maintained very well."
"This publication is long overdue! Oliver Laasch and Roger Conaway have taken a giant stride towards realizing responsible management. Their approach leads us to believe that we have almost achieved that goal. However, it is time for fundamental change in the choice of materials and production processes. Let's be creative, innovative and beneficial for environment and society. Merely being responsible is boring!"
"Principles of Responsible Management is the book that many of us have been waiting for--a remarkable tour de force that integrates responsible management with all of the key disciplines involved in successfully managing the modern enterprise. Its comprehensive coverage and timely emphasis on the responsibilities inherent in each of the management functions, combined with both a global (actually, 'glocal') and historical perspective on how these functions fit together, make it an invaluable classroom and managerial resource for anyone interested in managing for a better future."

It has a didactic format: the concepts are contextualized whilst the pages are full of short examples of its application by organizations. At the end of each chapter it is shown a section of key-words, as well as an exercise list and two interviews covering the academic and corporate reality, respectively. Thereby it is easier to approach the present challenges that companies are facing inside the management for sustainability - the problems that they deal externally, the internal barriers that they face and what type of operations and tools are at their disposal.
In the introductory chapters, the literature review makes an overview of responsible management elucidating the transition from the traditional management behavior towards the responsible management and listing the essential skills with which a responsible management could act with the aim of apply the values of sustainability at the organization.
Engage and develop the responsible management in organizations is possible and depends not only on the existence of an industry created for this purpose.

And this could be conducted in the general functions of traditional management. This transposition is possible and this book shows, with competence, how to get there.
