In their seminal book 'Net Positive: How Courageous Companies Thrive by Giving More Than They Take' former Unilever CEO Paul Polman and sustainable business guru Andrew Winston explode fifty years of corporate dogma. They
reveal, for the first time, key lessons from Unilever and other pioneering
companies around the world about how you can profit by fixing the world’s
problems instead of creating them. To thrive today and tomorrow, they argue,
companies must become “net positive”—giving more to the world than they take.

This episode features Paul Polman interviewed by former CEO and co-founder of Seventh Generation, and CEO of the American Sustainable Business Network, Jeffrey Hollender in dialog on what net positive really means, and what businesses are being called to do in these times.
