Do More Than Give, the new book from authors Leslie R. Crutchfield, John V. Kania, and Mark R. Kramer, outlines how companies such as GE simultaneously improve communities and make a profit. In other words, how they create "shared value," the concept that Kramer coined along with Michael Porter to describe the evolution of capitalism away from shareholder primacy, where profits enrich the few, to stakeholder capitalism, where companies create value for shareholders by enhancing value for broader society at the same time. This new business focus entails analyzing a company's product and markets, recreating its value chain, and amplifying the productivity of the surrounding communities in which it functions.

I have heard a great deal of grumbling lately about the chasing arrows and the plastic resin numbering system. Today I noticed a blog post (full post written by Debra Atlas at Envirothink is below with a link to her original post). I wanted to solicit feedback from my colleagues who are focused on plastic recycling, as well as CSR and Sustainability leaders since pretty much all companies and supply chains have plastic as a byproduct or in packaging. You know the issues and opportunities related to plastics recycling better than anyone. What do YOU think?
