#6-Business and Regeneration-A conversation with KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz
In this episode we explore the role of business in moving the paradigm from sustainability to regeneration in our response to the crises of our time. Focused on profit, market share and growth, corporations have rightfully earned much of the distrust that the public feel. Continuous growth on a finite planet appears ludicrous to many now. Can businesses and corporations reinvent themselves for the challenges of 21st century? In this far-reaching podcast we explore how the organization Sustainable Life Media/ Sustainable Brands has been at the forefront of leading the way to help corporations become more sustainable and regenerative. We learn how businesses often have more flexibility, international reach, and resources to lead change initiatives than governments do.
Our guest, KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniaz is Founder and CEO of Sustainable Life Media/Sustainable Brands. She describes founding the organization because she and few others saw the need for business to adopt systems thinking and address sustainability. A long-time friend of our hosts Dr. John Izzo and Alain Guathier, she was instrumental in bringing them together which ultimately resulted in this podcast. Prior to launching Sustainable Life Media in 2004, KoAnn lead a boutique consultancy for 2 years and worked 18 years in business-to-business media.
