Contributors include: Simmons & Simmons, the Eden Project, The Fairtrade Foundation, Thames Water, the Environment Agency, RoSPA, Transport for London and Manpower UK.

The Sustainable Enterprise will help organisations negotiate the challenges involved, and it sheds light on what has become a critical area for all companies in the 21 st century.
