A decade ago Andrew studied The Natural Step, a method of assessing whether a company, a nation or our global civilisation is ecologically sustainable or not. At the same time he explored the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). He concluded that given the reality of accelerating ecological deterioration, ideally CSR should mean corporations taking responsibility for the evolution of a viable society. This was not what he found.
Andrew also noted that many environmental groups focus on their own patch. Their work is valuable, but our greatest need is that as a society we commit to becoming ecologically viable as our major priority.
As a big picture systems thinker and philosopher* Andrew is aware that the most influential point of change in any human system is our thinking - with thinking broadly conceived of as our understanding of the world, our ways of going about things, our personal psychology and our core values.
