Why SMEs are our best hope for a sustainable future

I wrote recently about the need for vision in corporate sustainability, and this article takes the idea further by arguing that ability to change is higher with new and smaller organisations.

Unfortunately we are deeply wedded to the “big is better” mindset that has created organisations like Fonterra and The Warehouse; a mindset that is fed by our deeply seated need to conform. This need leads to consumption based more on what everyone else is doing than on logic or values. Can Walmart Change? – http://pulse.me/s/fP0vT
