Growing the Green Economy
Foreword by Hunter Lovins
"This book is as thought provoking as its title. Henderson provides a comprehensive review of leading-edge global initiatives to sustain the planet, people and profits. As a pioneer activist, Henderson has both authority and intimate knowledge to document current efforts to sustain humanity and the quality of life. The book makes an invaluable contribution to its subject by providing examples and references for others to promote, adopt and/or develop the green economy."

With insight, clarity, warmth, and enthusiasm Hazel Henderson announces the mature presence of the green economy. Mainstream media and big business interests have sidelined its emergence and evolution to preserve the status quo.
Throughout Ethical Markets Henderson weaves statistics and analysis with profiles of entrepreneurs, environmentalists, scientists, and professionals. Based on interviews conducted on her longstanding public television series, these profiles celebrate those who have led the highly successful growth of green businesses around the world.
Ethical Markets is the ultimate sourcebook on today's thriving green economy.
