The Earth Talks: The Nature of Business – Giles Hutchins

Giles Hutchins is a recognised thought leader in sustainable business and co-founder of BCI: Biomimicry for Creative Innovation. At this talk he explores the challenges to the prevailing ‘business as usual’ model, explains the pressing need for transformational change, and reveals the concepts and mind-sets necessary to inspire the businesses of tomorrow. In his ground-breaking new book The Nature of Business Giles explores how firms of the future are ones that are inspired by nature. Also a case study will be presented – Interface a worldwide leader in the design and production of carpet tiles and Guardian Sustainable Business 2012 award winners. Kelly Grainger, Head of Sustainability for Interface UK & Ireland, will talk through how Interface’s sustainability journey aligns with the principles Giles puts forward in The Nature of Business.
