Editorial Reviews

Review

The Zeronauts demonstrates once again how John Elkington has become our most accurate and prescient oracle with respect to sustainability, restorative commerce, and environmental innovation. In his judicious and respectful writings, he uncovers vistas of opportunity for start-ups, corporations and governments, panoramas of brilliant ideas that will transform our lives’.

Paul Hawken, author of The Ecology of Commerce, Natural Capitalism and Blessed Unrest, and the visionary entrepreneur who ignited Interface founder Ray Anderson's interest in zero.

‘A pioneer within the sustainability movement, John Elkington continues to inspire us, shifting the spotlight from change-as-usual to breakthrough innovation’.

David Blood, Senior Partner & Co-Founder, with Al Gore, of Generation Investment Management

‘The Zeronauts is a must read for the business minds of today and tomorrow’.

Jochen Zeitz, Chairman of PUMA and Chief Sustainability Officer of PPR.

‘John Elkington is a one-man Tipping Point creator: what Malcolm Gladwell calls a maven, connector and salesman all rolled into one! The inventor of the triple bottom line and Cannibals with Forks has surpassed himself with The Zeronauts!’

David Grayson, Chair and Director of the Doughty Centre for Corporate Responsibility, Cranfield University, UK

Elkington riddles this insightful excursion into the land of "zero" and zero-footprint with leads to confluent organizations and individuals influential in incubating a New Economy that is sustainable for the long-term. This book itself is a form of incubator for those of us who may have been tuned out for a few years, doing other things. A quick and accessible primer for the emerging epicenter where optimization standards meet health, wellness, and global learning.
