Economic and financial considerations are often perceived as being antithetical to environmental concerns. Is it possible to reconcile economic development and growth with preservation of the planet and its resources? The authors of F inance and Sustainable Development believe reconciliation of these two seemingly opposite agendas isn't just possible—it's essential.
