I just returned from annual Global Green Growth Summit 2013 in Copenhagen. Paul Polman, the CEO from Unilever, was a panelist at several of the sessions I sat in on. His contributions specifically on food and agriculture raised the quality of the discussions to a heightened level of alertness from the crowd. I have rarely seen anyone so elegantly describe complex issues with a perfect blend of staggering disturbing statistics, big picture thinking and common sense business fundamentals. I researched Paul a bit upon my arrival home and find his recent blog post “Sustainable Business: Where Our Moral Compass Meets the Bottom Line” – a very interesting read with very sharp and cool statements regarding the role of business today.
