Save the planet AND make money
Gary Hirshberg, CEO and founder of Stonyfield Farms, has a great new book about how his company has managed to become very profitable, while adhering to "green" environmental practices and principles. Stonyfield is quite a company; they generate $300 million in annual revenue, and have become the world's largest organic yogurt producer. Hirshberg's book offers practical advice for managers by detailing the specific ways in which his firm has managed to increase revenue and profits, while also promoting sustainable environmental practices. I'm looking forward to hear Hirshberg talk about his book when he visits our campus here at Bryant University on March 19th.
