The Collective Wisdom of Environmental Movers and Shakers

The impact of climate change and the need for sustainability has been the topic of many books, but we wanted to hear what influential environmental movers and shakers had to say about the role of business in dealing with what one of the gurus calls ‘a planetary emergency’. Ray Anderson, founder and chairman of Interface Inc. and  one of TIME magazine’s ‘Heroes of the Environment’ tells a compelling story of how his epiphany into the harm his company was doing to the environment transformed the way it did business. Amory B. Lovins, environmentalist, chairman and chief scientist of Rocky Mountain Institute offers insights into how tackling the energy conundrum will solve many of the world’s pressing problems. From Africa, Professor Wangari Maathai, environmental and political activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner, discusses how tree-planting became synonymous with her mission to help the planet survive.
