Writing a book of this nature is a challenge. I would like to thank Google’s innovators, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, for their mission in 1996 to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. This gave me the ability to research at the click of a key to find data and information. Google understands driving business sustainability and is innovative, believing in acquisitions and partnerships.
The leaders of sustainability are all of you who takes on the challenge and bring about a change to improve the world in which we live.
Thank you to all the many companies I have worked with throughout my business life, from registrars, standards bodies, and government to industry, institutions, and many nonprofit organizations and committees, who have provided me with insight about how organizations function and how leaders think and operate. I cannot name them as there are too many and it is difficult to choose which to leave out.
Asking questions is not unfamiliar to me; my mother joked that the reason I always ask “why” is because she named me Jayne with a y. The business leaders of today who ask questions are taking the first step to sustainability.
I would like to personally thank Sharon Wilson, my dear friend and a high school English teacher, for her support and review of my book.
In addition, I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with John Wiley & Sons and bring this information to the global marketplace.
