Publisher Comments:

“Inspirational . . . Essential reading for anyone, whether lay, student, or practitioner, interested in business success today and in the environment.”—Library Journal (starred review)

 

In 1994, Interface founder and chairman Ray Anderson set an audacious goal for his commercial carpet company: to take nothing from the earth that cant be replaced by the earth. In this remarkable book, Anderson leads the way forward and challenges all of us to share that goal.

-Cut greenhouse gas emissions by 94 percent

-Cut fossil fuel consumption by 60 percent

-Cut waste by 80 percent

-Cut water use by 80 percent

-Invented and patented new machines, materials, and manufacturing processes

-Increased sales by 66 percent, doubled earnings, and raised profit margins

 

Offering practical ideas and measurable outcomes that every business can use, Anderson shows that profit and sustainability are not mutually exclusive; we can improve our bottom lines and do right by the earth. Written with passion and an executives hardheaded savvy, Business Lessons from a Radical Industrialist is the most inspiring business book of our time.
