Having a successful career has had some general measurement tools to identify it by, such as how much one makes doing their job, if one has an office to themselves and how big it is or what the view is, and what the title on one's resume is. But author Marilyn Waite wants to teach us a new approach to a successful career. And that's being mindful of our environmental impact and our energy consumption while we do the jobs we do. In Sustainability at Work, she makes a broad sweep over various industries to give examples of how we can reduce our environmental footprints and what exactly that means. It's impactful, insightful, and critical to our planet's future.
What I loved most about Sustainability at Work by Marilyn Waite is that she at once refuses to dumb down her valuable knowledge and somehow still makes it accessible to those who aren't as much in the loop. With almost no prior experience in the topic, I was still able to follow along. And some of the examples she uses for sustainability are things I wouldn't have thought of in a million years. Like the fact that the entertainment industry uses boat loads of energy for everything from speakers to microphones. Or that printing presses can use vegetable inks. She also uses valuable real world examples from events, newspapers, universities and more, and with enough references listed to last you a lifetime. Any business professional would benefit greatly from delving into this read and learning a thing or two or ten. If this book gets passed around enough, I think we could be looking at a much greener and much brighter tomorrow.
