Seventh Generation, the country's leading innovator of non-toxic and renewable household solutions and the number one "green" brand in America, has been named a 2011 Leader for Change by the United Nations and the Foundation for Social Change. The award was accepted by Seventh Generation CEO John Replogle at a special presentation at the United Nations Global Conference for Social Change in New York City.

Replogle elaborated on the company's mission to embrace a triple bottom line that balances people, planet and profit in an interview with event moderator and New York Times editor, Jane Bornemeier.

"Seventh Generation has received an incredible number of honors in our 23-year history, but I'm not sure that we've ever received one as meaningful as this," said Replogle. "It's a tremendous acknowledgement of the progress we've been making to pursue our company's purpose to have an impact beyond profit. I think it speaks to a growing global desire to find better ways of doing business, leading industry and serving consumers. The old business model focused exclusively on profit is no longer viable and the world needs to forge new economic and social systems built on sustainability. This award recognizes that Seventh Generation is well on the path to this new model."

These values embody the philosophy of the Leaders of Change awards, which are presented to those organizations that have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to embedding environmental and social performance in their competitive strategy.
