They end up answering one of the critical questions of our time: Is sustainable business sustainable? Can employees in global companies make great products, take care of the environment, benefit society, and make good money-all at the same time, good times and bad?

It instead tells of researchers and designers and engineers and factory bosses who made great things happen in back rooms and on the factory floor.

They also changed the people around them-and they can change all of us"--"@en ;
