Greening Business

Reports on sustainable business practices and philosophy.

A printer-friendly version of this page

45 minutes
Directed by David Springbett
Produced by CBC's "The Nature of Things"
With Anita Roddick & Paul Hawken



This film shows that those businesses that adopt sound environmental practices are usually rewarded with a better bottom line.

Typically industry gobbles up natural resources and returns nothing but waste. But things are changing. A large hotel chain has initiated an environmental strategy designed to eliminate waste in their 27 hotels. One of the baby Bells started an office recycling program that was so successful they turned their attention to their whole system of product packaging.

Amongst those interviewed are Anita Roddick of The Body Shop, and Paul Hawken, author of "The Ecology of Commerce" and "Natural Capitalism". He believes we must move from our current linear economy to a cyclical one. "What we have to do is create the conditions for human life on this planet that respect and preserve all life."
