Ray Anderson on the business logic of sustainability

Webcast Today: Ray Anderson Memorial Service, 10:00 am EDT

Joe Romm notes:

Ray Anderson — one of the great leaders of the sustainability movement and a personal friend — died earlier this month.  Interface, the carpet manufacturing company he founded and later turned into one of the world’s flagship green companies, is holding a memorial service this morning.  You can watch it here: details below).

I knew Ray for almost two decades and followed his journey toward sustainability closely.  He was the genuine article, the epitome of a sustainable visionary corporate CEO.

He was also one of the classiest and kindest people I knew, a man of great heart and spirit.  He was the kind of person whose warmth and energy lit up a room, whose wit and wisdom changed people’s minds about what was possible.

He walked the talk.  Indeed, he created the path that made it possible for others to walk what he talked about.  Here he is at TED, speaking “on the business logic of sustainability” and how he switched from “plunderer of the Earth” to a “recovering plunderer” to “America’s greenest CEO”:

The webcast will be recorded and accessible immediately afterwards and in the weeks following the event to accommodate schedules around the world. The recording will be available through the same link:
