Buildings might cause environmental impacts through their life cycles. It is considered that tall buildings have much more environmental impacts than to low-rise buildings. In order to decrease these impacts carrier system design and sustainable design concepts come into prominence for tall buildings. Carrier system materials and carrier system types as part of carrier system design, and ecological, economical and social-cultural sustainable design criteria as part of sustainable design should be handled as a whole for the design of tall buildings. In this book, the application of sustainable design criteria on 10 LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certificated tall buildings was examined. Afterwards, the application success of ecological, economical and social-cultural sustainable design criteria for the examined tall buildings was evaluated in the context of the suggested evaluation method. The evaluation and the relations built in this book should be adopted as sustainable design approach by all actors that take role in building sector.

Packaging design is a powerful vehicle for making our lives friendlier, our planet greener and our businesses richer. It is an essential link between the producer and the customer, where it contributes to the positioning and presentation of a product; and on many occasions, the use of the product after purchase. What is missing is a compass that can guide practitioners in the right direction. This is particularly so in the field of packaging where the routes you take may contradict rather than contribute to sustainable development. Managing Packaging Design for Sustainable Development: A Compass for Strategic Directions emphasizes the need to rethink packaging system design, by presenting a strategic packaging design tool; a compass. The compass encourages you to go off-road, to develop and innovate, and to remake the packaging design solution that previously was best practice. Theory and practical applications are balanced by outlining the most crucial tenets of packaging design for sustainability and by illustrating wide range of real-life cases that will inspire and challenge the mindsets of those who apply the compass in packaging design related projects. This is a must-have book for designers, engineers, logisticians, marketers, supply chain professionals and other managers who seek guidance on sustainable solutions through packaging design.

Arta Ante State Building and Development. Two sides of the same coin. Exploring the case of Kosovo

This dissertation's hypothesis argues that state-building and development are processes that, to function successfully, must be positioned in a complementary interrelationship. This argument has arisen in response to contemporary approaches to state-building and development that are too narrow, so that state-building strategies are often reduced to the establishment of political institutions to the exclusion of other equally necessary structures that include economic, social, and even cultural concerns; in the same sense, development strategies frequently focus on the support and establishment of selected economic structures at the exclusion of political, cultural, and social dimensions. Furthermore, a necessary prerequisite for long-term stability is a guarantee of individual and collective security, and the state requires, in its establishment and development, this aspect in all of its institutions. By taking as a case study the intervention of UNMIK and the EU in Kosovo, the author attempts to show how state-building and development processes are interrelated, and how they might best be applied in the field in order to achieve sustainable outcomes.State-building is defined as the building of state structures, which are role- and rule-oriented institutions within political, economic, social and cultural domains. Development is used in this work to identify the process responsible for making these structures sustainable over time. In the case of Kosovo, in addition to th...

The drive towards environmentally friendly buildings and infrastructure has led to a growing interest in providing design solutions underpinned by the core principles of sustainability to balance economic, social and environmental factors. Design Economics for the Built Environment: Impact of sustainability on project evaluation presents new directions, reflecting the need to recognise the impact of climate change and the importance of sustainability in project evaluation. The aim is to provide a new approach to understanding design economics in the context of the changing policy environment, legislative and regulatory framework, and increasing economic, environmental and social pressure as result of the sustainability agenda. The book follows a structured approach from theories and principles in the earlier chapters, to the practical applications and emerging techniques focusing on value and social, economic and environmental considerations in making design decisions. It starts with the policy context, building on various theories and principles such as, capital cost, value of design and resource-based theories, the new rules of measurement (NRM) to explore cost planning, the relationship between height and costs, key socio-economic and environmental variables for design appraisal, eco-cost/value ratio (EVR), whole life theory and the treatment of carbon emission as external costs, productivity and efficiency, fiscal drivers and legal framework for carbon reduction, procurement and allocation of risks in contracts. Case studies, practical examples and frameworks throughout reinforce theories and principles and relate them to current practice. The book is essential reading for postgraduate students in architecture, building and quantity surveying and is also a valuable resource for academics, consultants and policy-makers in the built environment.

Jose Trejo Valuing a Marine Protected Area in Belize

Tourism inflows continue to significantly contribute to the Belizean economy despite the global economic downturn and financial crisis facing the world economy.This in and of its own reveals the vulnerability of small developing states that depend heavily on their natural resources for economic prosperity.While the economic importance of Belize's natural resources directly and indirectly impacts its Gross Domestic Product, management and sustainable use is not equally given its due relevance.The integrity of marine environments and ecosystems across the globe are continuously exploited and are increasingly under threat.Belize's development policy agenda must seek to embrace the sustainable use of critical environments such as the Belize Barrier Reef System, atolls and marine protected areas.This study offers an opportunity for policymakers to give importance to the merging of economic valuation and sustainable management.It is anticipated that this work will spur the interest of environmentalists from all walks of life to champion the sustainable use of natural resource environments using available economic tools for demand estimation.

Vishaal Kishore Ricardo's Gauntlet. Economic Fiction and the Flawed Case for Free Trade

'Ricardo's Gauntlet' advances a critique of the mainstream economic case for international free trade. While the core of the case for free trade is David Ricardo's principle of comparative advantage, the book argues that this case relies on a cluster of interconnected and mutually enforcing 'economic fictions' - economic theories or doctrines that pretend to be fact but which upon examination turn out to be mirages. Exposing the layers of fictions nested in the subfields of mainstream economies empties comparative advantage of its persuasiveness, bringing down the case for free trade.This book is not, however, confined to dealing with esoteric puzzles within economic theory. Rather, it takes a social theoretical perspective and grapples with comparative advantage and its associated economic fictions as ideas that ground an argument with social currency, social validity and social effects. While 'Ricardo's Gauntlet' engages in economic debates, it does so with the purpose of demonstrating the fragility of mainstream economic ideology and the flaw at the heart of its justification of free trade.Proposing a novel disaggregation of the case for free trade into its component fictions - and drawing on and uniting heterodox and radical strands including social theory and political philosophy - 'Ricardo's Gauntlet' reveals that the case for free trade fails precisely on its own terms. This failure unnecessarily and dangerously limits ou...

Shigi S.J. Evarist William Human empowerment towards sustainable economic development

This book is an economic and philosophical discourse on sustainable economic development inspired by Ujamaa and the philosophy of self-reliance advocated by Julius Nyerere as a policy towards social and economic development. The book explores human empowerment as a means to sustainable economic development. It argues that human empowerment in developing countries can build on Nyerere's approach to development founded on community participation. However, self-reliance is not possible without the ability to build sustainable development and-, self-reliance philosophy and efforts towards development in their current forms have lacked the ability to intensify people's capability. Human empowerment is needed to produce people with vision, who can reflect on situations, initiate relevant and responsible action, and thereby transform situations for the common good. The empowerment I recommend is endowed on education, entrepreneurship and civil societies. Building on Amartya Sen's philosophy of the capability approach to development, empowerment will provide relevant solution for developing countries to break away from economic dependency and the vicious cycle of poverty.

There are many comprehensive design books, but none of them provide a significant number of detailed economic design examples of typically complex industrial processes. Most of the current design books cover a wide variety of topics associated with process design. In addition to discussing flowsheet development and equipment design, these textbooks go into a lot of detail on engineering economics and other many peripheral subjects such as written and oral skills, ethics, «green» engineering and product design. This book presents general process design principles in a concise readable form that can be easily comprehended by students and engineers when developing effective flow sheet and control structures. Ten detailed case studies presented illustrate an in-depth and quantitative way the application of these general principles. Detailed economic steady-state designs are developed that satisfy economic criterion such as minimize total annual cost of both capital and energy or return on incremental capital investment. Complete detailed flow sheets and Aspen Plus files are provided. Then conventional PI control structures are be developed and tested for their ability to maintain product quality during disturbances.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2,0, Edinburgh Napier University, course: Business Strategy & Sustainable Development, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this dissertation is to demonstrate the necessity and implementation of sustainable development in business, focusing on the food an beverage industry by using the examples of Nestlé SA and Kraft Foods Inc. The literature review builds the theoretical framework of sustainable development by examining the drivers for sustainability, triple bottom line approach, shareholder theory, stakeholder theory, and stakeholder groups based on secondary data. The case study methodology rely-ing on public company resources is used to analyse, evaluate, and compare the spe-cific industry drivers for sustainability and the companies' approaches of sustainable development. Based on the theoretical framework, the analysis and discussion of the prioritised issues, approaches, results revealed that the two analysed approaches are successfully in promoting sustainability. Furthermore it was revealed that in-creased economic, environmental, and social value is increasingly created by taking stakeholder claims into account and vertically implementing sustainable development in the upstream and downstream of the value chain. Therefore, it was identified that Kraft Foods' approach is marginal less successful due to its focus on indirect coll...

The model embraces the Genuine Progress Indicator and triple bottom-line accounting.The authors explore important topics, including:• causes of the global economic crisis during the presidency of George W. Bush;• insights on how President Donald Trump?s administration is approaching economic problems;• ways all citizens can work together to ensure we meet our optimum potential; and• strategies to achieve balance among economic, social, and environmental needs.While most people think that sustainable economics is all about climate change, the authors take a much broader view, noting that without economic security, there can be no military security and no homeland security.America has enjoyed prosperity, but too many citizens continue to live in poverty. We can all earn a better return on our national resources by educating ourselves and Regenerating America with Sustainable Economics.

Jared Kolb The Need For Crisis

Responding to environmental problems is becoming an increasing priority of the world's population. As the developed world has pushed the boundaries of economic development, it is also principally responsible for many global environmental issues. Sustainable development has emerged as a potential solution to these problems, but is often so vague in definition, it provides little help. How then are we to affect change on environmental issues? This book seeks to answer such a question through a comparative case study, examining the differences between Canadian and German approaches to climate change and material waste disposal policy. The project works through the sustainable development literature and utilizes The Natural Step framework to make policy recommendations. It is the goal of this book to provide policymakers, interest groups and citizens alike with tools to improve the state of the environment everywhere.
