Director: Nathan Havey
Ray Anderson had spent 20 years building Interface, the largest carpet tile company in the world, when he was blindsided with a new kind of problem. In 1994, he lost a large client order when an environmental consultant objected to buying his carpet tiles. To meet this emerging sustainability challenge, Anderson convened an environmental task force and scheduled a kick-off speech to share his new vision, but he struggled to define his company’s way forward. Inspired by a new book, The Ecology of Commerce, by Paul Hawken, a powerful new vision emerged, launching him past the immediate hurdles of risk management and legal compliance. What he defined changed his life forever, and established an inspiring company mission with the potential to change the world.
Following the screening, hear a conversation between, and ask questions of, director Nathan Havey and Joey Shea, Interface.
