Sad news today as Ray Anderson, CEO and founder of Interface Global succumbed to cancer. He truly wanted to make his company as sustainable as possible, and he was successful. He was named America's Greenest CEO by Fortune magazine.
Time magazine just had an article about him just this past April.
"Anderson talks about business as a test in morality — one he believes most American businesspeople are failing. He refers to himself as a "recovered plunderer," because he believes that any company that makes money by taking more from the earth than it gives back is doing just that — plundering the planet. "Theft is a crime," Anderson told the TED conference in 2009. "And the theft of our children's future would someday be considered a crime."
