Have you ever felt that you don’t have power to affect how your company works in the world? Ever wished you had solid examples of sensible and profitable ways for companies to be more environmentally and socially sustainable?
There’s an inspiring story of Ray Anderson and his leadership of Interface, a large company that was innovating, growing fast, and experiencing great success. Then, he found out one prospective customer refused to buy their products. Despite Interface meeting legal requirements, the prospective customer had concerns over the company’s environmental impact.
He did research, and after he found the answers to his questions, he decided the objecting customer was right. This set in motion the journey to make Interface one of the most sustainably focused companies on Earth.
When you do, it just might help you realize that you have more power to change things in your own company than you thought.
And there are others who will join you. In fact, you’ll surely be in “good company”!
