Editor's Note:Earlier this month, we debuted a new channel on CSRwire with Noble Profit to focus on short video interviews with key leaders in the sustainability field. These interviews share insights from corporate leaders who are actually creating profitable sustainable business practices and adopting clean tech, dispelling the myth that zero harm costs more.
Through these conversations, Noble Profit will explore the question of value, providing unique insight into today's trends with inventors, investors, sustainable business experts, and thought leaders. This week's interviewee: Joel Makower, Chairman, GreenBiz
In the complicated world we live in, a few powerful incumbents maintain the status quo to protect a small number of special interests groups. This is not a conspiracy theory but fact.
Meanwhile, many companies are doing much more than they are letting people know about - but why are the good guys afraid to tell us how they are doing things right? Joel Makower, Chairman and Editor of GreenBiz speaks about these barriers to progress and the paradox of good happening simultaneously.
Looking at the future of the United States and the global economy with the opportunity of leading a multi-trillion dollar energy revolution, many corporations are flipping the bill for the evolution of clean tech. Yet, politics made clean technology a dirty word in the 2012 election.
In this Noble Profit video interview, Makower helps us discover a paradoxical world that causes companies who are doing good to tiptoe around their progress. But there is hope for tomorrow as Makower offers some food for thought about how to align our common goals within a paradoxical world.
Joel Makower is the Chairman and Editor of GreenBiz and a part of the GreenBiz and Verge conferences in San Francisco.
