INFORUM's 21st Century Award: Adam Werbach
Adam Werbach, Founder and CEO, Act Now Productions
A lot has happened since Adam Werbach declared environmentalism dead to the Commonwealth Club three years ago. In 2007, Werbach's sustainability agency Act Now helped Wal-Mart engage its 1.3 million employees in one of the largest, grassroots sustainability movements to date -- the Personal Sustainability Project (PSP). In January 2008, Act Now was acquired by Saatchi & Saatchi, a hothouse for world-changing ideas with over 7,000 employees in 84 countries. Together they aim to become the sustainability agency of record for the world's leading corporations. Their purpose: help companies grow their business and preserve the planet through strategy, product and supply-chain innovation, workforce engagement and marketing. The mission: create a consumer revolution for social change.
