'Greener Marketing: A Responsible Approach to Business' - the first book

from Greenleaf Publishing and the precursor to this volume - was
at almost the same time as the Earth Summit in 1992. This was a period
of escalating international concern about the planet and booming
consumer demand for greener products and services. Seven years on, there

is a huge amount of lessons to be learned from how companies have
responded to this demand. Accusations of greenwashing, poor performance
and price premiums have, on the surface, all conspired to make green
marketing a less attractive proposition for marketing and brand
managers. But the world has moved on. And, as this new volume - with
contributions from an outstanding collection of international
experts - clearly shows, green marketing has evolved to address
globalisation, increasing stakeholder pressures for corporate
transparency, and the growing imperative of the triple bottom line.

The purpose of this book is to provide practitioners with best-practice
examples and actionable recommendations on how to implement green
marketing activities. It provides information and ideas for those
involved in marketing on how to incorporate environmental and social
considerations, as well as providing new perspectives on marketing for
environmental managers.

There are three sections. The first sets out the strategic issues and
rationale for green marketing; the second addresses tactical issues in
more detail; and the third provides detailed case studies from around
the world. Topics addressed by the global set of contributors include:

- Services as substitutes for products
- Sustainable product development
- Green marketing alliances
- Environmental communications
- Green consumers
- Eco-tourism
- Environmental marketing in developing countries

As the book clearly demonstrates, there are ample opportunities for
firms to green marketing profitably and to achieve long-term business
advantage by differentiating themselves in increasingly competitive

'Greener Marketing: A Global Perspective on Greening Marketing Practice'

is not only a sequel to the successful first volume, but redefines
global progress towards the successful marketing of greener products and


"   'Greener Marketing: A Global Perspective on Greening Marketing
Practice' is a practical guide for the business executive, manager and
business student who wants to learn what the winners are doing and how
to be successful in communicating to the market. The international team
of contributors assembled here provide an impressive 25 chapters on
strategic development, 'greening' the marketing mix and case studies
that demonstrate that innovation is the key to sustainability."
