One of the toughest things I've had to consider is whether sustainability really matters to companies in a fundamental way. Not too long ago, an e...
The SMART approach is to remember, like the Happiness Research Institute shows, that when we start appreciating and doing our best to experience sustainable happiness, that extends out into the world and touches everyone and everything we encounter.
A sustainable economy need not be defined by limits, but by opportunity. The nature of consumption will change, but will not be reduced. All wastes will need to be reused. All energy will need to be renewable. The way we live will change, but it may well be better.
That's outrageous. Potentially dangerous chemicals should stay in the jar at the lab until their safety is determined through a thorough scientific investigation -- and certainly before they are poured willy-nilly all over the planet.

What I have been searching for, and have not yet been able to discern is the ingredient that makes some corporate leaders turn their backs on the conventional wisdom (I would argue it is herd mentality not wisdom) and reject the on maximizing short term 'shareholder return.'
Beyond ecosystems, biodiversity, or economics, we have a creative and calming connection with the ocean that provides us with enormous emotional, psychological, social and spiritual benefits.
Ten years ago, I knew sustainability made business sense and thought it would be obvious to everyone else who delivered or hosted events as well. Who wouldn't want to save money by reducing waste while giving back to the community?
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. When Peruvian Amazon forests disappear, so does this insect, and webs of amazing be...
