“Traditionally, responsibility means looking out for the bottom line, and reporting financial performance to your shareholders if you are a publicly traded company. In today’s world, responsibility is taking on a whole new meaning, including looking out for your employees and the natural environment. The viability and marketability of your product or service is a key barometer for a healthy company, of course, but now equally important is creating a healthy environment for your employees, and the environmental impact of your company’s operations.”

About Gay Browne | Environmental pioneer Gay Browne is the world’s first and only personal environmental therapist and is the founder of Greenopia, a company dedicated to achieving personal and community environmental health through small and large habit and behavioral adjustments. In 1994, even before the U.S. Green Building Council established the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) guidelines for environmental building verification, Gay set out to create what she calls “an optimal personal environmental health space.” She began designing and constructing the first completely environmentally responsible home of its kind. Gay travels the country speaking on environmental issues, sits on several boards, and holds various chair positions for environmental alliances, arts, and hospital foundations, and women’s and school groups.
