  7. 7. First results<br />First step<br />Nature example<br />Our action<br />What the world will see?<br />A company that has adopted very fast new values<br />The ants way of learning<br />Communicate inside the company the new values<br /> A knowledgeable forager of Temnothorax albipennis leads a naive nest-mate to newly discovered food by the process of tandem running. The follower obtains knowledge through its leading tutor. Both leader and follower are acutely sensitive to the progress of their partner with the leader slowing down when the follower lags, and speeding up when the follower gets too close.<br />We will make responsible for the new values, (after communicating and developing them with many representants of our company) people selected from all departments. They will become leaders of this action, of communicating new values to their colleagues. First they have to believe in this values, after they have to keep in mind that by everything they do they have to inspire to a number of established colleagues the new values ,this will be a game of a follower and a leader. After a while everyone could become a leader by promoting these new values.<br />The action is simple. Inside,new relations will develop and therefore more confidence is going to exist between colleagues. Outside a new way of interacting, which will present an executive leading manager in this issue of assuming new valueswill be seen. The eco leaders will be chosen in relation with their devotement to this idea, their experience in business and sustainable development. After a short time, everybody can become a leader of those new values and ready to interact and teach other people, or the new people. The world will see a matrix that works fast and efficient.<br />The company will first become eco inside.<br />We will start by making our employeesbelieve <br />they can become sustainability ambassadors!<br />
  8. 8. Conclusion:<br />As a sustainable company we are thinking like this:<br />If we can gain profit by harming natural environment or the society we will refuse to continue the business.<br />We won’t use non-regenerable resources if we don’t have a viable and correct plan of changing this resources with regenrableones in a determinate period;<br /> We will communicate values like:sustainability and ecofriendly development because this values are our identity and because we want that every company, and every business partner should be ableto respect our chances, our world and our future in the same way that we do!<br />Nowadays we don’t know a company that is respecting these values and we want to be the first that will do this and we truly believe in our success in a clean and resourceful world. <br />We believe also in your role in building the future.<br />Together we can do more!<br />
