Although some may call him an impactful idealist, equally exposed in his work is a practical approach to self-examination, with a lens to self-growth. He reports, seeking to be green is no longer enough; instead, he casts sustainability objectives as part of a strategic framework for responding to changes of all types: social, political, technological, cultural, and economic as well as natural-resource-related.
