“The Natural Step Framework was used as a compass in implementing sustainability at Interface. I wish this e-learning course had been available then; it would have made our efforts much easier. I have no hesitation in endorsing this e-learning course for any organization that wishes to engage all its employees in making an integrated decision to 'do well by doing good'.”

“There is no way we could have reached so many people in four months by any other means as we did through online learning. Once I let people know I could watch their progress online, they also wanted to make sure they kept up with the readings.”
