Patagonia founder gives away all his shares…

Updated: Sep 18, 2022

Here is a bit of news I loved hearing...hopefully you will too.

After being named a 'billionaire' by Forbes magazine, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard decided he was failing in his mission to make the world a better place..., he set about changing that.

This month Chouinard announced that he would be giving away all his shares in the company, allowing the profits to be poured into a charitable trust which will help fight the 'climate crisis'.

I hope this goes some way to showing other businesses that corporate responsibility should go beyond marketing campaigns and lose promises.
