  • SPEAKER’S NOTES : Ecological Footprint refers to the amount of land required to meet an average consumer’s needs (food, energy, raw materials, etc.) Consider this: In the U.S., it takes 12.2 acres to supply the average person’s needs. In the Netherlands, 8 acres In India, one acre. The Dutch ecological footprint exceeds the area of the Netherlands by 15 times. India’s ecological footprint exceeds its area by 35 percent.
  • Suzlon Energy Ltd has been ranked the 5th largest in the world, and the largest in India and Asia in terms of market share in 2005. In India, the company has been the market leader for eight years consecutively, installing 53% of the capacity added in 2005.
  • SPEAKER’S TEXT: Design professionals and facility managers were the catalyst for C&A when back in early 90s when they kept asking what C&A was doing to minimize our impact on the environment – especially with regard to source reduction and recycling. People were beginning to understand the consequences of dumping more than 4 billion pounds of carpet in landfills every year. Couple this with the fact that ten years ago, there were more than 18,000 in the U.S. Today, there are less than 1,800. The Triple Bottom Line helped C&A recognize environment sustainability not as “compliance” but as a market opportunity for stewardship. And this in turn led to the dedication that brought on the ER3 breakthrough – that now has three worldwide patents for commercial production of recycled content carpet-- and the Infinity Initiative -- our closed-loop recycling program. Today, we’ve recycled more than 20,000 TONS of waste material (equal in weight to 84 Statues of Liberty) and are working with dozens of leading companies and government agencies in diverting millions of pounds of old carpet from landfills. (Note: You may want to briefly discuss a couple of examples.)
  • SPEAKER’S NOTES: What you do in the next few years will impact future generations, and the next few years could make a profound change in your job performance goals and achievements. The new generation of business leaders understand and implement environmental initiatives – this is a fact. From conservative business magazines like the ECONOMIST to role models from Bill Ford (Chairman of Ford Motor Company ), Carly Fiorina (president of Hewlett-Packard), and Larry Babbio, President and Chief Environmental Officer of Verizon – it is clear that the corporate rising stars will understand and be able to integrate environmental strategies into their overall business strategies.
