520    A paradigm shift is happening at this moment. Firms and 
       consumers are aware of the fact that they cause 
       environmental pollution, depletion of resources and are 
       responsible for the dangers involved. At the same time 
       awareness is growing that they need to and will develop 
       the appropriate solutions in the time to come. The idea 
       that sustainable, cyclic businesses are more logical than 
       consumption-oriented and waste-dumping ones seems 
       fascinating to a growing number of people. For this change
       to happen new thinking and behavior is needed. Firms and 
       consumers play a central role in a sustainable business. 
       Companies deliver what consumers buy and vice versa. In a 
       sustainable paradigm, companies are able to develop and 
       produce sustainably. Therefore, companies need new 
       management concepts for sustainable investment, 
       manufacturing, logistics and marketing and for sustainable
       management. In Managing Environmentally Sustainable 
       Innovation, Bossink evaluates the innovation chain in a 
       process of five consecutive stages, articulates five 
       levels at which people collectively manage the chain, and 
       analyzes the interplay between the two. Acquainting the 
       reader with the complexities of innovation, as well as 
       which complexities are active in the management of 
       environmental sustainability, this book offers guiding 
       principles and a toolbox for the management of 
       environmentally sustainable innovation in construction
