The Ray C. Anderson Foundation unveiled its new brand video at the Leadership Awards Luncheon at Greenbuild in Philadelphia.
“This video tells a story which we hold very dear to our hearts,” said John Lanier, foundation director. “As far as we are concerned, it is the story – Ray’s epiphany, Interface’s journey and the Foundation’s beginning,” he said. “And if I had to use one word to describe this story, I could find no better word than ‘inspirational.’"
In additon to debuting the new video, Lanier also presented the first annual 'Ray Anderson Award for Radical Industrialism' to Intel today at the luncheon.
The Ray C. Anderson Foundation was created in honor of the late Ray C. Anderson (1934-2011), founder of Interface. During his time at Interface, Ray championed the notion of businesses doing well by doing good. It’s these qualities of advancing knowledge and innovation around environmental stewardship and sustainability that recognized Ray as a pioneer in industrial ecology.
The purpose of the Foundation is to perpetuate these shared values and continue the legacy that Ray left behind. Through research and funding, the Foundation aims to help create a better world for future generations
