Jeffrey Hollender is a leading authority on corporate responsibility, sustainability, and social equity. More than 20 years ago, he cofounded Seventh Generation and went on to build the fledgling company into, a leading natural-product brand known for its authenticity, transparency, and progressive business practices. Today, as a social entrepreneur, author, speaker, consultant, and activist, Jeffrey’s mission is to inspire and provoke business leaders to think differently about the role that they and their companies play in society.

Jeffrey is an adjunct professor of sustainability and social entrepreneurship at New York University; co-chair of Greenpeace USA; and a board member of Practice Green Health, Healthcare Without Harm, and Verité, a leading international workers rights organization. He is also the co-founder of the American Sustainable Business Council, a coalition of 200,000 business leaders committed to changing the rules of business.

In August 2014, Hollender partnered with his daughter, Meika Hollender, to launch Sustain Natural, the first company to provide sustainable, fair trade and non-toxic condoms.
