Video: Sustainability as strategic imperative

In this conversation with GreenBiz Group's Joel Makower, retired U.S. Marine Corps Col. Mark "Puck" Mykleby details the opportunities identified in “A National Strategic Narrative,” a document he co-authored to craft a grand strategy for the country.

The three key areas of demand he discusses: walkable, smart-growth housing; regenerative and organic agriculture; and a productivity revolution focused on reducing resource intensity. "Sustainability is the central concept," he says of all three.
