“Doing Business Beyond Borders to me means realizing the potential of green technologies and resource development that are becoming increasingly feasible, profitable, and necessary for the sound ecological management of the Earth for our children and grandchildren. It is about understanding the practical and realizable means to accomplish this objective and crossing this bridge to an environmentally sustainable future.”
