Beyond Zero

In order not only bring negative news about what is going wrong in the world and how little efforts are made by companies who can but won’t make a major impact on revering climate change, this is a story to watch and be inspired by.

In Beyond Zero we follow pioneering CEO of Interface, Ray Anderson, as he reinvents what it means to run a business. One of the most globally recognised ethical organisations, Interface, a world-leading modular flooring company with a fully integrated collection of carpet tiles and resilient flooring, has become an iconic example of how a business can thrive after reinventing itself as a force for good.

The documentary Beyond Zero celebrates a life of impact and offers an inspirational roadmap for how businesses can play a leading role in reversing climate change.

After a life-changing epiphany, Ray Anderson embarked on a high-stakes quest to eliminate all negative environmental impacts by 2020. To succeed, they had to  overcome deep skepticism, abandon the status quo, and ignite a new industrial revolution. The multiple-award-nominated documentary Beyond Zero offers an inspirational roadmap for how business can reverse climate change.

This is a must-see film for any business leader who wants her company to survive and thrive in the challenging years ahead.

The documentary Beyond Zero was broadcasted virtually at the Transitions Film Festival 2021. The festival showcases short, feature, and VR documentaries about the social, environmental, and technological innovations that are shaping our collective future. Focusing on the mega-trends disrupting our lives and the pathways to building a better world, the festival celebrates and inspires positive change around the issues that matter most. Transitions Film Festival is the only festival in Australia, and one of the leading festivals internationally, that explicitly focuses on the grand challenges of our time, and the solutions to those challenges.

Some quotes about the movie

“Beyond Zero tells a powerful and hugely hopeful story about what it means to build a business around restoring the earth and just why we must reimagine capitalism to heal the world — and ourselves. Don’t just see this movie, bring its lessons into your company, and fast.”

Rebecca HendersonProfessor at Harvard Business School & Author of Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire

“Beyond Zero is a fascinating story, not only about inspirational and visionary founder Ray Anderson, but the struggles and determination of a company trying to become a positive force in the world. The film delivers a message that needs to be told: In the end it indeed boils down to people, and business can be more successful and resilient, simply by doing the right thing.”

Paul PolmanFormer CEO of Unilever and member of the board, United Nations Global Compact

“Ray Anderson challenged the billion-dollar flooring company he founded and led to become an environmentally sustainable and restorative enterprise.  He transformed his company, but more so, he transformed the hearts and minds of tens of thousands of people who worked for him, heard him speak or read his visionary books. He helped all of them, and me, understand the profit and potential in truly embracing sustainability — not as an add-on, but as a way of doing business. Beyond Zero tells his compelling story and ably reveals Ray’s vision, inspiration, humanity, generosity and grace, among many other admirable traits that characterized him. This is a must-see film for any business leader who wants her company to survive and thrive in the challenging years ahead.”
