The Earth Needs a Purple People Leader

When I was asked to put a requirement in our FedEx Express building specifications for our newly built facilities to obtain LEED® Certification, I didn’t think I heard correctly.  Surely we just want to specify that our buildings might go for LEED, not that we really intend to certify all our future projects, right?  Wrong!  Yes, we wanted to save energy, help the environment, and create better places for our customers and employees, but we also wanted to be sure that FedEx was doing it the right way.
