Everything you believe now is untrue and we are making policies that harm the environment based on bad information. After reading The Plastics Paradox you will be able to make wise choices that help create a brighter future for us and for our children.

Autorenporträt
Chris started inventing as an undergraduate and hasn't stopped since. He went on to work at major corporations including the Cookson Group UK, Electrolux (Frigidaire) in Sweden, BASF's headquarters in Germany and then assorted C-level roles in the US. These days, he consults for the Fortune 100, who come to him for breakthrough plastics and materials solutions. As a leading open innovator, his six challenge wins to date place him among the elite few. Having worked in different industries, across multiple countries and job functions, he has gained a comprehensive overview of innovation from every angle. Chris has spent his career marveling at how desperately ineffective corporate innovation is. The Innovation Abyss sucks in your money, time, ideas and effort, for no tangible return. Over the last few decades, he has prepared notes for this book, a chilling exposé from an innovation insider.
