Salt magazine was founded on the belief that consciousness and compassion will lead us to a better world.
While we have already seen a mass movement towards sustainability – with governments, individuals and corporates all making a stand – the days of the traditional bolt-on CSR department are over.
Today’s complex and urgent challenges of global overconsumption and environmental depletion require fresh holistic thinking. And big business – with its trillions of dollars of resource consumption – must play its part in driving this change.
To celebrate a movement towards corporates using their considerable power for good, Salt presents its 100 most compassionate business leaders for 2015.
The Salt team drew on its collective years of experience within the world of business and environmental sustainability to draw up a list of global compassionate leaders based on the following criteria:
- SUSTAINABILITY Leadership in terms of: renewable energy; resource conservation; agriculture; social and economic sustainability.
- INNOVATION Have they pioneered ideas within their industry?
- COMPASSION Have they created a company that transcends the standard business paradigm?
- IMPACT How many lives have they changed?
