The Business of Less: The Role of Companies and Households on a Planet in Peril

Synopsis of the Talk: Since its inception thirty years ago, environmental sustainability has been based on the concepts of “eco-efficiency” and “win-win”. Despite countless eco-efficiency and win-win efforts across the world, the state of the natural environment has further degraded instead of improved. This talk first explains why our current approach to environmental sustainability was doomed to fail and then introduces a new set of principles that together provide a road map, for businesses and for households, to a world in which human prosperity and a healthy environment are no longer at odds.Bio: Roland Geyer is Professor of Industrial Ecology at University of California’s Bren School of Environmental Science and Management.
