Description:

Sadly, the private sector is mostly talk and little action these days when it comes to digging in its heels to bring about necessary and meaningful change for society and our environment. It seems as though every day another round of corporate statements, pronouncements, and commitments trickle out with little meaningful analysis, transparency, or ensuing change reported. While this “double-speak” is not the case among all corporate citizens, it is pronounced enough to concern me deeply as a business leader who now also serves as CEO of a business activist organization.
