Or so has been the thought for many years.While ESG is undoubtedly good, says John Fullerton, mere transparency is not going to solve the world's sustainability issues.

Yep, Zymergen’s running the best play that you’d ever find in the Steve Jobs playbook, the “it’s insanely great, and call now to order” one.
