John Elkington is a world authority on corporate responsibility and sustainable capitalism, a bestselling author and serial entrepreneur. Currently, he is a Founding Partner of, and Chief Pollinator at, Volans. His latest book is Green Swans (Fast Company Press, April 2020). This website tracks the evolution of his role as an “Ambassador from the Future.”
To date, I’ve spoken at more than 1,000 major conferences and similar events. Everything from major convenings like World Economic Forum summits in Davos and Dalian, China, through to high-octane boardroom sessions and talks to universities, business schools and village halls.
No single skill has shaped my working life more than writing—and I’ve been fortunate enough to be involved in the publication of many books, reports and articles. My latest book: Green Swans: The Coming Boom in Regenerative Capitalism (published by Fast Company Press, 2020).
I’ve been an energetic blogger since 2003—and in this space, once again, my entries blur the boundaries between the personal and the professional. This website and the associated blog are part platform for ongoing projects, part autobiography, and part accountability mechanism.
