Hunter Lovins is President of Natural Capitalism Solutions (NCS). NCS helps companies, communities, and countries implement more sustainable business practices profitably. Lovins has worked from Afghanistan to New Zealand, and was asked by the King of Bhutan to serve on a team of international thought leaders transforming the global economic paradigm. This led to a position on the Steering Committee of the Alliance for Sustainability And Prosperity (www.asap4all.org), an international team developing a global strategy of change for a world that works for all.
Over her 30 years as a sustainability thought leader, Lovins has written hundreds of articles and 14 books. Her latest, The Way Out: Kickstarting Capitalism to Save Our Economic Ass (2012), is a sequel to the international best seller, Natural Capitalism.
A founder of the field of Sustainable Management, Lovins has helped create several MBA programs and is currently a professor of sustainable business at Bainbridge Graduate Institute and Bard MBA. In 2013, she served as Regents’ Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at University of California, Berkeley. She was recently named a Master at the DeTao Academy in China.
Lovins has won dozens of awards, including the European Sustainability Pioneer award, the Right Livelihood Award (the alternative Nobel) and the 2012 Rachel Carson Award. TIME magazine recognized her as a Millennium Hero for the Planet, and Newsweek called her the Green Business Icon. She consults widely for companies from Unilever and Walmart to small businesses in local communities, and speaks to audiences ranging from the World Economic Forum to chambers of commerce.
