Catalyst Testimonials

“Everyone in the company is busy with the normal routine of everyday. As a Catalyst, you show them and inspire them to come up with new solutions and help the company on its way to a sustainable future.”

- Huub Zegveld, Director, Van Puijenbroek Textiel

“There is not a 'one size fits all' for sustainability, trade-offs are bound to happen. It is okay to not have an optimized product right off the bat, as long as you have a continuous improvement program in place.”

- Kendra Martz, Sustainability Coordinator, Construction Specialties, Inc.

“A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.”
