Can Businesses Make the Big Pivot for a More Prosperous World?

Andrew Winston, founder of Winston Eco-Strategies, is a global expert on sustainable business strategy and a “practical evangelist” for going green. His articles touch on the crossroads between the environment and business, covering such topics as how CEOs can save the world from global warming and the one thing business dies without.

Winston, author of The Big Pivot, joins the Green Divas to discuss how businesses need to pivot to create more resilient enterprises and a more prosperous world. It’s time for a new approach to business, a time to collaborate radically.
