Confessions of a Radical Industrialist
Profits, People, Purpose-Doing Business by Respecting the Earth
Narrated by Ray C. Anderson / 11 hours 16 minutes
His story is now legend. In 1994, after reading The Ecology of Commerce by Paul Hawken, Ray Anderson felt a "spear in the chest." The founder of Interface, Inc., a billion-dollar carpeting manufacturer, realized that his company was plundering the environment and he needed to steer it on a new course. Since then, Interface has cut its greenhouse gas emissions by eighty-two percent, with a goal goal is to reach a zero environmental footprint by 2020. Thoughtful and winning, Confessions of a Radical Industrialist shows how Anderson revolutionized his company, in the process making it one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For, improving quality, bringing costs down-and driving up profits. He challenges all industry to share his ambitious goal: to take nothing from the earth that can't be replaced by the earth.
