Although it's been a nerve-wracking journey at times, I felt confident, and still do, that the environmental issues we face and the unsustainable ways in which we currently work, live and play require us (and will continue to require us)to make significant adjustments in the way we do business.

Now, looking back I can see how much has changed since those very early days. Although it sometimes feels as though we aren't making much/enough progress with green careers these days, you'll see we really have made progress in the last five years.
