The Environmental Capitalist Quick View

The Environmental Capitalist

Making billions by saving the planet

Authors: Carl Hall

As fi ve billion people turn middle class, the world is entering an unprecedented age of scarcity. We’ve already seen it in the form of rising prices for raw materials and land. But this is just the beginning; soon our economies will be constrained by shortages in water and other raw materials, not to mention the increasing threat of global warming.

In a remote corner of the earth, a few small nations have been preparing for this resource scarcity. A movement that started in the Nordic region, and now spreading globally. A new breed of entrepreneurs – the Environmental Capitalists – are creating the solutions desperately needed to save a shrinking planet. And they are doing it with the system that is often seen as the cause of the problems we face today – capitalism. They have turned their backs on corporate social responsibility, sustainability and traditional environmentalism, seeing them as ineff ective, hypocritical and uninspiring. Instead, they have come to realize that capitalism is the only tool that can deliver solutions on the scale we need.

This inspiring book by self-confessed environmental capitalist Carl Hall presents fi ve principles on how to win in the coming age of scarcity. It provides entrepreneurs, companies, investors and policy-makers with specifi c examples and ideas on how to help save the planet and generate profi ts at the same time.

The Creative Society

HOW THE FUTURE CAN BE WON

Author: Lars Tvede

Human creativity has been one of the fundamental drivers of civilization and progress – solving immense problems, creating opportunities and overcoming enemies like no other force. Often it has baffled its skeptics by finding new and better resources, unexpected environmental technologies and genuinely amazing products that no one had predicted.

However, like so many before it, Western civilization is now suffering from serious internal decay with its bloated public sectors, punitive taxes, over-regulation, marginalized citizens, stagnation, debt, unemployment and pessimism.

In the Shower with Picasso Quick View

In The Shower With Picasso

The art of turning uncertainty into opportunity The legendary artist Pablo Picasso took baths when he was in  need of new ideas for his work. Other people take walks in the  park or visit an art gallery or watch Youtube – in an attempt to  spark their creativity and imagination. This book inspires us to work harder with our creativity – both as  individuals and companies. Being creative is now critical in our  careers, but most people regard creativity as somewhat mystical,  slippery and a rare entity. In fact, all of us are capable of  creativity – if that is what we want. Often, it is about having the  right mindset and finding the right spark to set off your creativity. This book contains wonderful stories from Scandinavia of people  from different backgrounds – opera, architecture, science, art,  drugs, sport, toys, film, technology – and how they find and use  their creativity. Scandinavians are one of the most creative  groups of people in the world, and as such, this book represents  the Scandinavian way to creativity.

The Content Revolution

Communicate what you stand for by telling a better story

Author: Mark Masters Marketing has changed more in the past 20 years than any other business discipline. So why are we relying on the same-old textbooks? Why do business owners still think that shouting louder than the competition is the answer to longevity? The old marketing way, where we were encouraged to spend more on advertising and to be seen, is dead. Marketing was about interrupting the masses, but times have changed. The only differentiator we have, as businesses, are the stories we tell.

Masters of Innvovation

Building the Perpetually Innovative Company

Authors: Kai Engel, Violetka Dirlea, Stephen Dyer and Jochen Graff.

Masters of Innovation is the manual for creating a sustainable innovative organization – because innovation is not an art. It’s a capability. The past 15 years have brought a flood of how-to books about innovation, most of them stuffed with stories of startling eureka moments and charismatic leaders. These stories have little to teach business leaders their own innovation capability. But Masters of Innovation clearly and concisely explains how managers make innovation more than just a ‘breakthrough moment’.

This book offers the real experience of the world’s best Innovators. These are not just the hot ‘tech’ companies of the moment, but companies growing in traditional sectors—automotive, train travel, household appliances—where slow growth would be expected. Many have been in business for generations, and still they grow. Being innovative is a repeatable process that can be studied and learned, one that will sustain a company’s profitable growth for decades.
