His story is now legend. In 1994, after reading The Ecology of Commerce by Paul Hawken, Ray Anderson felt a 'spear in the chest.' The founder of Interface, Inc., a billion-dollar carpeting manufacturer, realized that his company was plundering the environment and he needed to steer it on a new course. Since then, Interface has cut its greenhouse gas emissions by eighty-two percent, and the goal is to reach a zero environmental footprint by 2020. Thoughtful and winning, Confessions of a Radical Industrialist shows how Anderson revolutionized his company, while in the process bringing costs down, improving quality, making it one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For'and driving up profits.
