"Sustainability - Not Just an Add-on"

Traditionally, passionate people who wanted to make the world a better place would start a charity or found a non-profit group to sell the idea of change.  Today, a growing group of people are using a new business model to sell products that change the world while making a profit.

Dr Collins has researched sustainable enterprises and the uptake of sustainable practices by more than 700 New Zealand businesses and will be using some New Zealand examples of ‘ecopreneurs’ who have built their businesses by redefining their product and adding to the social fabric.”

“Ecopreneurs know we can’t follow the same models and expect to find better solutions. They are the necessary critical change agents using the power of commerce to create a sustainable future.”

Come and hear about some of the companies in New Zealand looking for those better solutions.
