Roland Berger Strategy Consultants produced this anthology, which likens the advent of green business to the Industrial Revolution. The comparison is apt. Just as transformative 19th-century innovations changed business, so, too, will green technologies alter industries, companies and societies for the environmental good. More important, as this series of essays explains, the green transformation is an opportunity for – not a threat to – businesses, if they can adapt to new imperatives.
