GM of Patagonia on how a business can be a force for good.

Patagonia is one of the most famous outdoor brands in the world and is also renowned for leading the pack when it comes to experimenting a different way of conceiving and running a business. It’s mission statement is bold and unusual : "We’re in business to save our home planet.”
