"The Natural Step Framework was used as a compass in implementing sustainability at Interface. I wish this e-learning course had been available then; it would have made our efforts much easier. I have no hesitation in endorsing this e-learning course for any organization that wishes to engage all its employees in making an integrated decision to 'do well by doing good'."
