“Net Positive turns courage and principled action into an electrifying strategy for business success. It’s powerful, persuasive, and unlike any other book you’ve read.”
“Net Positive is the most compelling case that exists for why business just as much as governments must be driven by an urgent need to tackle dangerous climate change and widening inequality.”
