The rationale of most contemporary changes can be traced back to economics; creativity and economics have combined together for effecting most changes in the world. Drive for resource optimisation is no different; a welcome byproduct is environment protection. In the context of the military, economics not only relates to costs but also the prospect of operational gains. Therefore, this book while exhorting the military hierarchy to realise their potential as environmental leaders, has demonstrated how resource optimisation is conducive for increasing the operational effectiveness. While the military organizations are in focus here, the lessons of resource optimisation covered in the book are easily applied to any large industry set up. It is the race to control natural resources that would define global hot spots of future. The country that reduces its dependency on these resources would not expose its flank to the adversary. Reducing consumption levels is also desirable for preventing environmental degradation. This convergence of interests is a win-win situation that only requires a will and innovative approach towards organizational functioning, from procurement, technology transfers, energy consumption, training etc, to auditing the implementation of optimization process. These aspects have been explained in the book mostly with case studies to make it interesting even for the environment sceptics. It is hoped that this book would provide ideas to readers on ways of conserving resources in their daily lives at home and at work. The importance of publicising organisational efforts in social domain finds special mention as this does not yet seem to be in the ethos of Indian military. The overarching connect between social and military matters is implicit in contemporary society. This book would thus appeal equally to the military and the corporate leaders.Printed Pages: 228.
