Did you know that businesses and even large corporations can become sustainable and help reverse climate change? The global billion-dollar company, Interface, showed us it’s possible in the film, Beyond Zero.
In this episode of Collaborative Connections Radio Show and Podcast, host Kelly Lorenzen had the opportunity to interview Nathan Havey, writer/director of the Beyond Zero film, Dr. Rhoda Deon, who is helping create the curriculum from the movie, and Diane Janovsky, Chapter President of Conscious Capitalism Arizona.

After a life-changing epiphany, the CEO of a global public company embarks on a high-stakes quest to eliminate all negative environmental impacts by 2020. To succeed, they must overcome deep skepticism, abandon the status quo, and ignite a new industrial revolution. Beyond Zero offers an inspirational roadmap for how business can reverse climate change.
Nathan Havey unlocks companies to become the greatest version of themselves.
A believer in the transformative power of stories, Nathan wrote and directed an acclaimed podcast series, “10 Things You Should Know About Stakeholder Capitalism” and an award-winning documentary film, Beyond Zero, which is being used by companies like KKR and UPS to show their teams how business can rise to meet the global challenges we face.
