"Part cheerleader, part scold, part dreamer... [Anderson is] the rarest of hybrids: a born-again green industrialist." (Fortune magazine)
Life long student of life.
Excellent book from Ray Anderson on his personal journey implementing sustainable and environmentally friendly business and manufacturing processes. His experiences, triumphs and failures lend wisdom to an industry that is challenged with staying competitive and relevant. He offers many stories from outside and inside his business on important sustainability themes. Many metrics and studies are also presented to drive points home.
The chapter I found most inspiring was social sustainability. This is a point that I hadn't paid much attention to and is a critical pillar to creating and sustaining a healthy community. Again, he offers many real and touching stories to give life to the topic.
I've purchased copies of this book for several friends as I believe his story resonates with business professionals of all backgrounds.
