Green Shoots is a series that we have run on the website, profiling businesses that show a different approach to people and planet. In their own ways, they demonstrate something of what a fair and sustainable might look like.
Those case studies have been collected together for the first time into this downloadable resource. It profiles a variety of businesses across several sectors. Some you may know, such as the employee owned retailer John Lewis. Others are less familiar, such as the sustainable clothing pioneers Rapanui, or the co-housing development LILAC.
Green Shoots is a short and inspiring paper that showcases some of the alternatives to distant and damaging shareholder corporations. Here are better ways that reward hard work, spread the wealth and respect the natural world.
