This book chapter provides some insights on how managers in environmental, health and safety (EH&S) or sustainable development (SD) functions in companies, can more effectively engage senior management on moving their organizations to more sustainable forms of production. These insights are based primarily on the consulting work I did while I was a Director at Five Winds International a sustainability management consulting firm I co-founded and ran for 14 years. It is based on work I did there with large multi-national companies who were at various stages of integrating environmental and social factors into their business. It was originally published in Sustainable Production: Building Canadian Capacity edited by Glen Toner and published by UBC Press in 2006.
