Writing in UPS’ Longitudes blog, Professor Andy Hoffman shows how business can take the lead in transforming society.

Addressing climate change with global treaties is a good step, but not enough, says Michigan Ross Professor Andy Hoffman.

Toyota Motor North America, for example, has an ambitious goal to go “beyond zero environmental impact” by 2050.
