What do Brazil's top beauty brand, America's second-fastest-growing restaurant chain, and the world's third bestselling car have in common? They are shattering the myth that acting sustainably and building a billion-dollar business are mutually exclusive.
Green Giants examines nine companies that are merging social responsibility with wild profitability—and reveals the six factors responsible for their success, including:
- Iconoclastic Leadership fueled by deep conviction and a rebellious streak
- Disruptive Innovation that uses sustainability to spur the development of radically better products and services
- A Higher Purpose that ignites the company—when the mission leads, profits follow
- Mainstream Appeal with positioning and packaging stripped of the crunchy cliches that alienate the average customer.
This new breed of billion-dollar businesses proves it's possible to achieve enormous success while implementing sustainable principles that help consumers live better lives. Ranging from start-ups to business lines incubated within major multinationals, these companies collectively represent over $60 billion in revenue. What's more—many command wider profit margins and are growing faster than their conventional counterparts.
Packed with eye-opening research, exclusive interviews, and enlightening examples from Chipotle, Toyota, Unilever, Tesla, General Electric, and more, Green Giants serves as a blueprint for sustainable success that anyone can follow.
