The focus is on furnishing solutions and equipping the student with both conceptual understanding and technical skills for the workplace.

Elements of sustainability are examined piece by piece, and wide coverage ranges over ecosystems, social equity, environmental justice, food, energy, product life cycles, cities, and more. Techniques for management and measurement as well as case studies from around the world are provided. Chapters include further reading, discussion questions, and problems to foster quantitative thinking. The book is supported by a companion website with key website links, detailed reading lists, glossary, and additional case studies, together with numerous projects, research problems, and group activities, all of which focus on real-world problem solving of sustainability issues.The textbook is designed to be used by undergraduate college and university students in sustainability degree programs and other programs in which sustainability is taught.
