Although the food industry is beginning to make headway with its sustainability initiatives, substantially more progress is needed in order to feed the world’s growing population sustainably. The challenge is that the topic of sustainability can seem overwhelming and there is limited information that is specific to the food industry. Written by an experienced food industry professional with years of experience in sustainability, The 10 Principles of Food Industry Sustainability inspires and informs the progress required to nourish the population, revitalize natural resources, enhance economic development, and close resource loops. The book makes this complex topic approachable and actionable by identifying the most pressing sustainability priorities across the entire food supply chain and showing, with tools and examples, how producers, processors, packers, distributors, marketers and retailers all play a role in advancing improvement. The book begins with an overview of the Principles of sustainability in the food industry: what they are and why they matter. Subsequent chapters focus on each of the Ten Principles in detail: how they relate to the food industry, their global relevance (including their environmental, health, and social impacts), and the best practices to achieve the potential of meaningful and positive progress that the Principles offer. Specific examples from industry are presented in order to provide scalable solutions and bring the concepts to life, along with top resources for further exploration. The Principles, practices, and potential of sustainability in the food industry covered in this book are designed to be motivating and to offer a much-needed and clear way forward towards a sustainable food supply.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Business Ethics, Corporate Ethics, grade: First Class Honours, South Bank University London, course: BA (Hons) Hospitality and Business Management - Sustainability within the Restaurant Industry, language: English, abstract: This paper considers the values and perceptions of diners' in relation to the concept of sustainability and presents an analysis of impact on their decision- making process when eating out at restaurants. From the literature review it appears that the context of sustainability has evolved gradually throughout human history; however only a few studies have been conducted with regards to diners' choice towards sustainable restaurants despite recent studies suggesting that more consumers are avoiding goods that leave a large footprint on the environment. The aim of this dissertation is therefore to discuss in critical terms whether a restaurant's "green" practice impacts on customers' behavioural intentions and to analyse if consumers' attitude to dining out has changed towards a more responsible approach in the restaurant environment. A survey of 417 restaurant diners from three casual and three fine dining restaurants within Greater London and seven interviews with relevant industry stakeholders revealed relevant information on the topic under discussion leading to an indication of whether diners really care or not about a restaurant's sustainable practic...

Sustainable environmental control through building design Heating, Cooling, and Lighting is the industry standard text on environmental control systems with the emphasis on sustainable design. By detailing the many factors that contribute to the comfort in a building, this book helps architects minimize mechanical systems and energy usage over the life of the building by siting, building design, and landscaping to maximize natural heating, cooling, and lighting. This new fourth edition includes new information on integrated design strategies and designing for the Tropics. Resources include helpful case studies, checklists, diagrams, and a companion website featuring additional cases, an image bank, and instructor materials. Designing buildings that require less energy to heat, cool, and light means allowing the natural energy of the sun and wind to reduce the burden on the mechanical and electrical systems. Basic design decisions regarding size, orientation, and form have a great impact on the sustainability, cost, and comfort of a building. Heating, Cooling, and Lighting provides detailed guidance for each phase of a design project. Readers will: Understand the concept of sustainability as applied to energy sources Review the basic principles of thermal comfort, and the critical role of climate Learn the fundamentals of solar responsive design, including active and passive solar systems as well as photovoltaics Discover how siting, architectural design, and landscaping can reduce the requirements for mechanical and electrical systems In sustainable design, mechanical, and electrical systems should be used to only accomplish what the architect could not by the design of the building itself. With this in mind, designers require a comprehensive understanding of both the properties of energy and the human factors involved in thermal comfort. Heating, Cooling, and Lighting is the complete, industry-leading resource for designers interested in sustainable environmental control.

The concept of sustainability holds that the social, economic, and environmental factors within human communities must be viewed interactively and systematically. Sustainable development cannot be understood apart from a community, its ethos, and ways of life. Although broadly conceived, the pursuit of sustainable development is a local practice because every community has different needs and quality of life concerns. Within this framework, contributors representing the disciplines of anthropology, sociology, geography, economics, law, public policy, architecture, and urban studies explore sustainability in communities in the Pacific, Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and North America.

Modern agriculture is the largest single contributor to global greenhouse gas production, deforestation and water consumption. Biodiversity, climate change, energy, soil degradation and water scarcity are critical issues and a strong and growing consumer contingent prefers to purchase organically grown and unprocessed food, while increasingly strident social activists expect products to be ethically, responsibly and sustainably produced. Like fair trade cocoa and shade grown coffee, wine must, sooner or later, meet these powerful demands and as a whole it has a lot more work to do.In The Business of Sustainable Wine, Sandra Taylor offers a new view of how the industry can be an important actor in sustainable agriculture, getting ahead of coming demands for a more responsible approach to our common future, and she provides a unique insight for the consumer on what to look for on the supermarket shelves to verify what counts as sustainable and what doesn’t.Taylor describes and analyzes trends in sustainability in wine regions around the world and shares important insight into the complicated world of agricultural sustainability, what it is for a wine to be a sustainable food product and how best to communicate these sustainable attributes to wine consumers. Drawing on case studies from a multitude of commodity industries, she gives producers tools and frameworks for how to go about integrating sustainability into their winegrowing and marketing, and retailers’ procurement manager...

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Engineering - Industrial Engineering and Management, Technical University of Berlin (Logistik), language: English, abstract: The need for the integration of sustainability into Supply Chain Management has constantly increased over the last years. The simultaneous rise of the relevance of outsourcing of logistics activities emphasizes the need to put strong attention to sustainable aspects in the relationship between shippers and their logistics service providers (LSP). This thesis strives to answer the question how sustainability can be integrated into the LSP procurement process.Thereto, a broad literature review is compiled by applying all relevant references into a comprehensive framework. One of the main revealed challenges of sustainable LSP procurement is the lack of overview on sustainable selection criteria.In order to overcome this gap, a multi-dimensional model will be presented to improve comparability and organization of criteria by assigning them to a sustainable dimension, field of activity, field of action and time/ planning horizon. The following research on existing sustainable selection criteria results in a long list with 123 criteria. The statistical analyses of this list provide insights into current research directions on sustainability and both approve assumptions and unveil mismatches from the existing body of literature.The development of an expert guidance based on the catalogue of sustainable sel...

Fully integrating sustainability into a corporate strategy has progressively become the ubiquitous norm. However, designing a credible, effective sustainability strategy still appears to be a challenging task and lacking employee support frequently labels the strategies as insignificant public relations practices. As the awareness for sustainability issues prevails, the call for a substantial paradigm shift in corporate mindsets emerges: For any sustainability strategy to be successful, the affected employees need to be aligned and engaged behind it. Human Resource Development (HRD) as proper training enabler for such strategies offers important voice and expertise to realize the true satisfaction of sustainability ambitions.At the present time of globalization and due to the critical need to consider environmental, social, and financial consequences of business operations, the sustainability movement cannot be considered a passing trend. Since HRD is expected to play a facilitative role in establishing corporate sustainability, this work proposes theoretical approaches linking HRD with sustainability and corporate responsibility. The empirical purpose of this study is to investigate the current engagement of HRD in the field, examining one fundamental question: Assuming that employees are key success factors for sustainability strategies, how can HRD professionals and departments ensure that sustainable behavior will be part of all members of a company?Drawing from qualitati...

Buildings consume 40% of our planet’s materials and 30% of its energy. Their construction uses up to three million tonnes of raw materials a year and generates 20% of the soild waste stream. If we want to survive our urban future, there is no option but to build in ways which improve the health of ecosystems. Understanding the concept of ecological sustainability and translating it into practice as sustainable development is a key challenge for today’s built environment professionals. The skill and vision of those who shape our cities and homes is vital to achieving sustainable solutions to the many environmental, economic and social problems we face on a local, national and global scale. Peter Graham offers here a holistic view of ecologically sustainable building by drawing on established areas of knowledge, demonstrating their relevance to the environmentally-conscious building professional and putting the process, product and impact of building into context. Case studies illustrate how sustainable principles have been applied successfully and discussion topics are offered to stimulate thought. Building Ecology will help planners, surveyors, designers and builders to incorporate sustainability into their everyday practice by: · showing which styles of building are ecologically sustainable · providing fundamental knowledge for making decisions using the principles of ecologically sustainable building · explaining a complex subject in a clear, balanced way. Building Ecology sets out the current scientific view of how nature works and how buildings link with and affect nature. It provides fundamental knowledge for building in harmony with nature and keeping Earth’s life-supporting ecosystems healthy.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1,0, Leipzig Graduate School of Management, course: Logistik, language: English, abstract: Sustainability has become a significant issue in many companies as it affects their reputation among customers. At the same time, outsourcing and globalization have resulted in the spreading out of supply chains across continents. Therefore, the focus of implementing sustainability has shifted from the single organization to the entire supply chain. This is of particular importance for chocolate manufacturers with their multinational supply chains as they are held responsible by the public for any irregularities which happen in their supply chain.Chocolate brand owners have been confronted with increasing criticism and pressure from politics and public due to the lack of sustainability in their supply chain. A current example is the TV documentary "Schmutzige Schokolade", a film about child labor on cocoa farms in Ivory Coast, for which the Danish filmmaker Miki Mistrati blames the chocolate manufacturers. The film, which was broadcasted on ARD on October, 6th, 2010, at 11:30p.m., has been sold altogether to 18 countries and was consequently watched by several million television viewers.

For many of the challenges associated with sustainability, there can be found connections with how modern societies produce and consume, with poverty issues or with those related to pollution and destruction of ecosystems. To solve these problems, new approaches are needed. The nature of sustainability and the prospect of unsustainability require a change of lifestyle and therefore of education. Changes are necessary in curricula, pedagogy, policy and institutional structures. Teachers should be encouraged to reinterpret their disciplines in light of a sustainable development agenda. The call for Higher Education to take a leading role in education for sustainability, for a more sustainable future is more insistent. Education is recognized worldwide as a critical platform to enable all sectors of society to learn to manage change and make the transition to sustainable practices. The present book offers a complex view of Sustainability in Higher Education and proposes the changes required for achieving a Sustainable University.

Sustainable development as a concept was first introduced by United Nations in 1974. It rose to broader public knowledge in 1987 with the publication of "Our Common Future", or so called Bruntland report by UN commission on sustainable development. Sustainability has since been a stable basis in many of the development plans made around the world. Sustainable ICT is a relatively new field, where work started around the turn of the millennium. This book, Sustainable ICT - A Contemporary Overview, aims to chart the history of sustainable development and describe the current situation of sustainability in the ICT field. Themes included in the book are academic work, administration, applications, frameworks, hardware, institutional and national strategies, practical measures, recycling and worldwide initiatives. For broader context, information and knowledge society is discussed as well. The book will work as a good introductory source on the field and its related issues on the first decade of 2000's. It explains the current state of sustainability research and suggests topics for future research.
