Manager, Sustainability & Citizenship, The Co-operators Group
Tom has emerged as a powerful triple threat: Thought leader, master collaborator, educator. A former highly rated university prof, he became the founding Managing Director of the Network for Business Sustainability, where he helped forge a network of over 1,500 businesspeople and academics who together produced leading content that inspired change world-wide. More recently he has played a pivotal role in leading IMPACT!, a remarkable program he co-conceived (see Clean50 Top15 Projects) that trains and enables passionate youth leaders from across Canada to become confident sustainability champions. The difference Tom makes will be felt for decades to come – and a possible new category for the next Clean50 of “Thought Leader” – for examplary contributions in multiple categories.
