Speaker information

Jeffrey Hollender, Seventh Generation, Jeffrey Hollender is author of The Responsibility Revolution and Chief Inspired Protagonist, Executive Chairperson, and co-founder of Seventh Generation, which takes its name from the Great Law of the Iroquois: "In every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." Jeffrey frequently addresses social and environmental responsibility at regional, national and international venues, and is often asked by other companies to consult on sustainability. Seventh Generation is the leading and fastest-growing brand of natural products for the home, and a leading authority on issues related to making a positive difference in the health of the planet and its inhabitants through our everyday choices.

Following the global financial crisis, and as we consider how to address the global challenge of climate change, do businesses need a new model of corporate behaviour?

Jeffrey Hollender's The Responsibility Revolution: How the Next Generation of Businesses Will Win argues that for too long our definition of what constitutes 'responsible' corporate behaviour has been dangerously timid and blinkered.

Maria Lee, UCL Professor of Law, Dr Marc Moore, Director of the UCL Centre for Ethics & Law, Dr Colin Provost, UCL Lecturer in Public Policy, and Andrew Grainger, Director of UCL Estates & Facilities, will give short presentations in response to the lecture, to be followed by a panel discussion.

Followed by a drinks reception in the Roberts foyer.
