That time has come again when The Natural Edge Project (TNEP) will host Hunter Lovins, President of Natural Capitalism Inc and co-author of Natural Capitalism, for her annual tour of Australia. The tour will occur from 21st March – 6th April, and will engage in a series of presentations, workshops and private sessions with TNEP supporters and other interested parties.


Natural Capitalism, Inc. - Creating The Next Industrial Revolution

The focus of the 2005 tour will be the upcoming publication developed by TNEP and Hunter Lovins et al titled ' Sustainable Business Practice - The Fieldguide to Natural Capitalism'. The publication will detail a program to operationally assist businesses to transition towards sustainability and highlight the role of government and civil society. Hunter is very interested in doing public lectures and also interactive sessions/workshops. She is genuinely keen to meet people active in implementing natural capitalism and to talk in detail about strategies that can be supported through TNEP and her consulting arm 'Natural Capitalism Inc'.
