Leading the way in current thinking on environmental logistics, Green Logistics provides a unique insight on the environmental impacts of logistics and the actions that companies and governments can take to deal with them. It is written by leading researchers in the field and provides a
comprehensive view of the subject for students, managers and policy-makers. Fully updated, the 3rd edition of Green Logistics has a more global perspective than previous editions. It introduces new contributors and international case studies that illustrate the impact of green logistics in practice.
There is a new chapter on the links between green logistics and corporate social responsibility and a series of postscripts examining the effects of new developments, such as 3D printing, distribution by drone, the physical internet and the concept of peak freight.Other key topics examined include:
carbon auditing of supply chains; transferring freight to greener transport modes; reducing the environmental impact of warehousing; improving the energy efficiency of freight transport; making city logistics more environmentally sustainable; reverse logistics for the management of waste; role of
government in promoting sustainable logistics.The 3rd edition of Green Logistics includes indispensable online supporting materials, including graphics, tables, chapter summaries, and guidelines for lecturers.
We live in a world which continues to experience dramatic suffering and loss of life due to natural hazard. The disaster paradigm has accelerated efforts towards resilience building, particularly since the adoption of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), a ten year plan to build the resilience of
nations and communities to disasters Urban areas present complexity and interconnectivity of various elements, and this needs to be considered when building the resilience of such areas to disasters. To address urban risks, local level disaster risk reduction (DRR) is of fundamental importance, not
only because it is closer to the citizens, but because it is the repository of regulatory governance functions and local knowledge The need to scale up the capacity of DRR at the local government level to build urban resilience is a key incentive for this study. With particular reference to the
example of Makati City in the Philippines, this book analyses a local DRR approach with reference to the HFA, applies a micro-level resilience assessment and discusses an effective model for enhancing local DRR capacity in the future.

Creating a sustainable future is one of the biggest challenges that we face as a human race. This is often made even harder by the apathy of many towards the need for sustainability. Education will play a crucial role in finding a solution to the global climate crisis, by shaping future generations
who are informed, enlightened and ready to take action.
This book explores the value of institutions of higher education in leading the way on the topic of sustainability education by ensuring that it is well entrenched in the curriculum, as well as in everyday practice and lifestyles. This unique volume features authors from different parts of the world
who narrate their own experience of integrating sustainability into their curriculum, and teaching sustainability to students.
By exploring the idea that education and sustainability should be seen as intrinsically linked if we are to see global change, this important text will prove invaluable for leaders, scholars and policy specialists in higher education.
"Disasters cause economic as well as human losses. Indeed, economic losses associated directly with disasters have continued at increasing proportions worldwide since the 1970s, as the 2011 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction conducted by the United Nations International
Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) illustrates. Disaster losses due to single geological events sometimes appear much greater in magnitude than those attributed to climate-related disasters. Nonetheless, the overall trend for increasing loss can largely be attributed to the increase in
climate-related disasters, which in turn is triggered in part by global climate change. Furthermore, as such disasters increase in frequency, it intensifies vulnerability in the poorest regions of developing countries. In this book, the authors discuss effective approaches to enhancing the local
disaster risk management (DRM) capacity of developing countries to combat increasing climate-related disaster impacts. Also provided are ideas and lessons on local disaster risk management, in terms of planning and practice in developing countries, with particular focus on a case study in Costa
Anyone involved in sales faces huge challenges these days, from fierce global competition and increased pressure on margins to the power of internet-savvy buyers and difficulties with getting time with prospective buyers. To succeed in sales, something more than the traditional techniques is needed.
Neuro-Sell presents an effective, brain-based approach to selling that is sensitive to what's going on in the customer's mind.Neuro-Sell helps readers understand the importance of the unconscious and get below the surface of what people say to recognise what they really mean. Packed with examples,
quizzes, templates and interactive exercises, it develops readers' skills in building sales relationships with the four main types of buyer and outlines the five stages of neuro-negotiating that will help give readers the competitive edge.

Neuromarketing in Action provides an in-depth review of how the brain functions and the ways in which it unconsciously influences consumer behaviour. It shows both the scientific frameworks and the practical applications of this increasingly popular marketing tool. Referencing many global brands
such as Aston Martin, Hermes, Virgin, Facebook, Ralph Lauren and Fuji, the authors, whose background covers both neuroscience and marketing, showcase the latest thinking on brain function and intelligence, and on the subconscious influences on consumer behaviour. Neuromarketing in Action then
examines the ways in which marketing efficiency can be improved through the satisfaction of the customer's senses, emotions, memory and conscience and looks at the impact on current marketing activities such as selling methods, sensory marketing and product modification, and on future strategies
like value innovation, sensory brands, increased interaction with social networks and permission marketing.
Many coaching tools and techniques are now fairly well established, but how do they actually work? Answer this questions and start delivering greater value to clients. Based on over twelve years of research, this book provides a clear explanation of the aspects of neuroscience that are relevant to
coaching so you can describe to clients from a neuroscientific perspective why particular techniques and methods work and the benefits to them.This fully updated 2nd edition of Neuroscience for Coaches includes new interviews with Marshall Goldsmith, Susan Grandfield, Christian van Nieuwerburgh and
Kim Morgan, along with new material on oxytocin, goals and mindfulness. It covers the latest neuroscientific research and, crucially, the ways in which coaches can use this information effectively and practically in their everyday work. Neuroscience for Coaches is a vital resource for keeping up to
date with recent scientific developments, tools and techniques in coaching.
The book is divided into four parts: (1) foundations of qualitative research methods consisting of a chapter summarizing the various qualitative paradigms and a research methods chapter illuminating various design features such as data collection and analysis, qualitative standards and ethics; (2)
frequently used qualitative methods in the study of leadership designs; (3) underutilized qualitative methods; (4) three commissioned empirical studies illustrating content analysis, narrative analysis, and mixed methods study using content analysis and case study. The book also includes a chapter
on the use non-textual, image-based sources of data for qualitative leadership research. Each of the methods chapters contains a number of leadership studies that have employed a given method such as case study, interviewing or phenomenology.The book is intended for students of leadership ranging
from graduate students to seasoned leadership scholars. It was written with leadership practitioners in mind who wish to broaden their understanding of new developments in leadership research.
