Generally a well read paper

Generally a well read paper. However I had to listen to it a few times as it jumps straight into examples and does not entirley explain definitions.

Great narrating

Dated, but relevant.

The author covers several real world examples of sustainable change and how it makes monetary sense. If you read between the lines, you can see why so many other companies fight against innovation by fighting against better environmental regulations. Some companies would rather fix the playing field than innovate and compete.
