This book traces the history and theories of corporate environmental strategy and applies them to a natural experiment in Latin America. Through extensive fieldwork and statistical analysis, a number of surprising conclusions are drawn about the dramatic differences between, and motivating factors for, multi-national practices across different countries. The results offer a toolkit for leaders in developing countries, as well as business leaders investing there, for fostering truly sustainable development. By comparing the relative environmental and social performance of 35 hospitality sites using 62 different metrics, we discover a set of diagnostic tools for predicting best and worst performers.

|The feasibility of establishing a Biosphere Reserve in St. Lucia. Challenges to Sustainable Development in the Small Island Developing State of St. Lucia Книга по Требованию Makeddah J. |
The investigation of this study can highlight the sustainability deficiencies that could potentially hinder a biosphere reserve designation on the northeast coast of St. Lucia, W. I. The research focus and findings have the potential to address a matter of key concern in St. Lucia' s sustainability planning efforts. Major findings of the analysis included a weak land development process on the island; its lack of rigorous policies, the absence of a national land use plan and low public participation; all hindrances to sustainability and to proper environmental management. The northeast coast is not yet ready to be designated a Biosphere Reserve as it must overcome certain challenges impeding sustainability. The major arguments point to the need for stronger policies for conservation, land use, and equitable economic benefits from the tourism industry. The resolution of many of these issues lies in the structural changes of governance, constitutional reform, empowering the local citizenry, and decision-making that is more participatory. A Biosphere Reserve attempts to harmonize development, the welfare of the people, and the maintenance of a healthy ecological system (UNESCO 1996a).

As a result of this research, additional insights were gained with regards to the variations in results between the questionnaire data and the focus group data. This study is significant because it uses human performance technology strategies to study motivation in the workplace and it suggests interventions for the identified gaps. It also identifies the current perceptions, attitudes, and problems being created as a result of the motivational strategies being employed. This study targeted the motivational strategies used by upper and middle management, therefore the employees, as well as their individual managers, were surveyed within various organizations across the country.
