Shmelev (2012) Ecological Economics: Sustainability in Practice, Springer
Ecological Economics
Sustainability in Practice

This book has become a massive bestseller and experienced 34000 downloads on Springer. It is used as a key text in teaching ecological economics at the executive level at Environment Europe

'Ecological Economics' is designed to be a concise, crisp, and elegant guide packed with references for students with some background in economics, environmental science or mathematics aimed at developing their analytical skills required for redirecting our development path towards sustainability in government, international organisations, academia, non-profit sector and business. It builds on the idea that a significant adjustment of the current economic theories is required, which was recently supported by the emerged world economic crisis, the climatic and biodiversity crisis the world is currently facing and the enormously slow progress that has been made in the field of reorientation of the global economy towards sustainability. We have chosen a positive approach for problem solving and strategic development, which is aimed at educating
the future decision makers and business leaders.

The book is aimed to provide an overview of a range of new methodological tools: environmentally extended input–output analysis , multicriteria decision aid, optimisation, geographical information systems, life cycle assessment , material flows analysis and modern applications of these tools to the most pressing today's problems: assessment of sustainability , climate change and renewable energy, loss of biodiversity , global resource use and sustainable waste management, corporate sustainability and other relevant themes.
