Ray Anderson on a Commitment to Environmental Sustainability

Being environmentally conscious isn’t just a fad for Ray Anderson. He was working to raise awareness long before the trend of “going green.” To him, it’s more than just a marketing phrase, it’s a way of doing business. It’s also a way to reduce waste and, in the long run, save money, but only if the company is genuinely committed.

Ray C. Anderson is the Chairman of the Board at Interface, Inc. He’s a sought after speaker and advisor on all issues eco, including a stint as co-chair of the President’s Council on Sustainable Development during President Clinton’s administration. Anderson has been lauded by government, environmental, and business groups alike. In 2007, Ray was honored as a recipient of the Purpose Prize from Civic Ventures, a think tank and an incubator, generating ideas and inventing programs to help society achieve the greatest return on experience, and by Auburn University with its International Quality of Life Award. He has a new book out called Confessions of a Radical Industrialist: Profits, People, Purpose – Doing Business by Respecting the Earth.
