Bob Willard author of Sustainability Advantage

30-09-2014 +++ The inspirational Bob Willard (author of "Sustainability Advantage") writes us: "The Sustainability Compass is a useful catalyst for people to think around why taking more environmentally and socially responsible decisions is so important. It contributes to sustainability literacy in society. The packaging of the app and the card deck is really smart. The questions gently help us realize that we w a n t to live more sustainably - that it is important to us".


Nice feedback from the Silicon Valley: "In my opinion, the majority of good decisions and innovations should begin by addressing a problem or well-asked question. I like the question-asking function of the Sustainability Compass."
