The award-winning film Beyond Zero will be shown at Firetti Contemporary in collaboration with The Umbrella Institute on Friday, April 29th. The screening will start at 8:30 pm and will last until 10:00 pm.
In his documentary Beyond Zero, film director Nathan Havey offers a roadmap for how businesses can reverse climate change by speaking about the billion-dollar organisation Interface, founded by the late Ray Anderson, that aims to eliminate all its negative environmental impacts by 2020. It is a powerful message about the sustainable transformation being possible. Nathan said that it is “the most important business story of the last 100 years”.
Ray Anderson spent 20 years building Interface, the world’s largest carpet tile company. However, in the 1990s, a losing streak began. The firm lost a major order due to environmental concerns. To avoid future risks, Ray decided to take the environmental aspect of his production seriously but had no idea where to start. Luckily, on Ray’s desk, there was a copy of Paul Hawken’s new book, The Ecology of Commerce, which changed his life forever and set his company on a mission to change the world.
Nathan Havey is a filmmaker, founder of Thrive Consulting Group, public speaker, entrepreneur, visionary, and powerful innovator in the global capitalist movement. “Stop, turnaround and see how far you have come,” says Nathan Havey.
“Beyond Zero tells a powerful and hugely hopeful story about what it means to build a business around restoring the earth and just why we must reimagine capitalism to heal the world — and ourselves. Don’t just see this movie, bring its lessons into your company, and fast,” says Rebecca Henderson, Professor at Harvard Business School, Author of Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire.
