Andrew Winston, founder of Winston Eco-Strategies, is the author of The Big Pivot: Radically Practical Strategies for a Hotter, Scarcer, and More Open World. It explains how climate change, scarcity, and radical transparency are changing the way businesses must operate to succeed in a rapidly shifting world. He is also the co-author of Green to Gold, the best-selling guide to what works – and what doesn’t – when companies go green, and Green Recovery, a strategic plan for using environmental thinking to cope with new economic challenges.
Winston is a globally recognized expert on green business, and has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Time, Newsweek, BusinessWeek, The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC News, and CNBC. He is dedicated to helping companies both large and small use environmental strategy to grow, create enduring value, and build stronger relationships with employees, customers, and other stakeholders. His clients have included Bank of America, Bayer, HP, Pepsi, Boeing, and IKEA.
He bases his work on significant on-the-ground, in-company business experience, including executive positions and P&L responsibility at global companies, start-ups, and dot-coms. His earlier career included advising companies on corporate strategy while at Boston Consulting Group and management positions in strategy and marketing at Time Warner and MTV.
After these more traditional roles, he pursued his passion to explore the overlap between business and environment. He served as Director of the Corporate Environmental Strategy Project at Yale’s renowned School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
Winston writes extensively on green business strategy, including a weekly column for Harvard Business Online, regular pieces on Huffington Post, and a monthly strategy e-letter, Eco-Advantage Strategies. For his efforts, he was recently named a “Planet Defender” by Rock the Earth. He received his BA in Economics from Princeton, an MBA from Columbia, and a Masters of Environmental Management from Yale.
Winston speaks about how environmental pressures such as climate change, as well as powerful stakeholders, are driving companies to go green, about how leading companies make environmental stewardship a strategic competitive advantage, about the strategies and tools the world's best companies use to innovate and profit in this new, environmentally-sensitive world, and about the hurdles companies face when trying to go green. He also moderates "Q&A" and panel discussions at events of all sizes and venues, from small meetings to large conferences, from world-class universities to corporate campuses.
