Ray C. Anderson: Carbon Footprint, Zero

Chairman and Founder, Interface, Inc.; Former Co-chair, President’s Council on Sustainable Development; Author, Confessions of a Radical Industrialist: Profits, People, Purpose--Doing Business by Respecting the Earth

If Anderson could make the dramatic transformation of emission rates from 10,447 tons of solid waste, 605.3 million gallons of contaminated water, 704 tons of toxic gases and 62,800 tons of carbon dioxide a year to zero emissions, why can't we all? Come hear how Anderson, one of Time magazine’s heroes of the environment and former co-chair of the President's Council on Sustainable Development, created the leading business model for sustainable works that is now used internationally to reduce carbon emissions. Anderson will discuss future of sustainability, a business model for sustainable works, and how you can change the future of your company.
